They Weren'T Comprehending Then - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
Never have I stood in someone's face,
To place what I thought...
Would be a valued judgement.
Or criticized their chosen lifestyle,
When invited as a guest to enter their home.
Nor have I told anyone what they 'should' do.
Or how it should be done.
I wanted to!
With a wish they would overcome,
To see life from a different point of view.
But I kept my mouth shut and respected.
I was not treated with such 'maturity'.
I had been wounded with salt poured.
I've gotten over myself and those days.
I am amazed by those who say to me now,
They wished they would have paid more attention.
And I wonder to myself...
They weren't comprehending THEN,
To anything that was mentioned!
