That Which I Have - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

You
IT
Giving me fits?
No!
I can handle this,
As its been done!
Before.
Those are lessons,
I have not ignored!

They
You
Me
With IT?
Being with them...
And they not getting 'it'?
No.

'Why me for this task? '
I sometimes would ask.
As I would pass those whispering,
'He's delusional!
He has refused our rationality! '
Quite confused he is.
And his tempermental personality! '

You've taught me to appreciate,
With love...
That which I have!
And I do
Too!
So appreciate You!
And 'all' that You do!
But,
'Why me for this task? '

I silence the thoughts,
Before they reach my lips!
Would I rather have God as my Guide,
And my Teacher?
Or would I rather let myself,
Be lead to indecision?
And become attracted to indeciveness...
And give up my needs
To seek what feeds me next and best!
