Stretch My Legs - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

I am the best.
And I have no problem
Showing you my credentials!
Where do you want to start?
With the scars on my back?
How about the crushing indignations...
I learned to endure,
While you and the others
Were ensuring my pain?
I am the best!
You know why I can contest to that?
You still ride my back,
But you are about to slide off.
I 'know' I am the best!
Because I allowed you,
To think you were the boss!
And now I'm ready to stand up,
And stretch my legs!
I've always known without me,
You'd be lost!
