Lawrence S. Pertillar

Relieved

I often wondered,
Why it was natural!
And there it was...
The evidence!
I felt relieved.
Almost vindicated.
There I was posing...
As a baby,
In pictures.
With my foot in my mouth!
I knew I did it with such ease.
Now I don't have to make excuses.
It's something I've been accustomed to doing...
All my life!

    I just read this again, and it's funny how the mind works because I just got a completely different take on this then I did the first time I read it. All the best, Diane
