The Ones Who Have Struggled - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

If people have found themselves blessed,
With decisions and choices they have made...
To discover and feel a happiness that is real,
Then why are there others...
Who have made their own choices to decide them,
Quick to try to convince...
The ones who have struggled,
To have done this...
Minding their business without complaints.
Yet are often heard to be more criticized,
By those who seem to despise...
How they have managed to survive,
Without depending on opinions, innuendos or rumors...
Others have relied on to feel accepted.
And...
They were the very ones collecting possessions,
To do it at their best to impress.
While laughing at those struggling to make ends meet.
With a doing it to address stale and repeated gossip.
