Similar Ignorant Circumstances - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
Since I live in a community
That is rich with pretentious 'do nothings',
I am regarded as a waste of potential,
Lazy and unaware of my talents!
I don't walk around with my resume on me
And find such beliefs as unfortunate!
I may be one of the few people
Who actually care about my neighbors!
And I thank God I am comfortable with myself
And not afraid of my own shadow!
If I thought I had to flaunt my 'gifts'...
I would be as insignificant
As those who have time
Assessing others to arise conflict
To satisfy their lack of self worth!
And I always thought God felt I was precious...
Or I wouldn't be able to write this,
For those who need a boost to lift themselves
From similiar ignorant circumstances!
