Self Promotion - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

I am one more devoted,
To the quality of work I produce.
That's how deeply involved...
And separated from myself I can get.
With messages that come,
And from me I want to deliver...
As soon as I can with it done and quick.
To then move on to other thoughts,
Demanding I notice whenever they visit.

Too humble I am to declare ownership.
Although it's not that I refuse self promotion,
As much as I have reduced my ego...
For me that became too restricted and limited,
To permit that which I have done to do...
With a doing to speak for itself.
To leave me not to wonder who,
May or may not be more impressed...
By what it is I have left to address.
