So Bold Are Those Shoulders - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

It's hard to disapprove someone determined.
Someone like that,
Is not easily swayed to be steered off track.

It is difficult to distract a mind fixed and attached.
As others scheme,
To remove one's hopes and dreams.

So bold are those shoulders,
Of one with reach.
One impossible to convince,
Obstacles can not be leaped.

So bold are those shoulders,
Of one with reach.
Especially if the one that teaches,
Isn't one that follows.
But that one who leads.

It is difficult to distract a mind fixed and attached.
As others scheme,
To remove one's hopes and dreams.

It's hard to disapprove someone determined,
Like that.
Someone who has already been stabbed in the back.

So bold are those shoulders,
Of one with reach.
One impossible to convince,
Obstacles can not be leaped.

So bold are those shoulders,
Of one with reach.
Especially if the one that teaches,
Isn't one that follows.
But that one who leads.
