Significantly Different - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

I am not the same,
To pretend changes I have made...
Have not been excruciating.
Or exhausting to attempt,
To conceal the affects that challenge...
Me mentally and physically.
Without adjusting to adapt,
To that which I had not planned...
Or expected.

I am not the same.
Once one storm after another came.

I knew my desire and wish for a smooth life...
Would eventually expose,
Those personal events I could not prevent...
From experiencing.
And making my life significantly different,
To know I could never explain...
Which one of those challenges came,
With a pain to change a sameness...
I had to accept and could not avoid.
