Thank You For Reminding Me - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
Because I thought we both would benefit
By being in each other's presence.
That's why I approached you!
I thought you would find that to be true too.
But you chose to use that
To unleash some unresolved issues...
You wish to keep!
And I have long since learned to forgive.
I will not forget,
The bitterness you reflect.
That reminds me of myself...
When I was self involved.
With a selfishness I have years ago left,
And you are not the kind I wish to waste my time with!
That self centeredness I have dismissed.
Thank you for reminding me,
Just how much I have grown.
Without needs to dump my insecurities,
On someone else's shoulders!
Seem to do what you do well.
And I do not wish to observe that in practice!
Or keep it rehearsed in my life.
