Those Who Challenge Their Obstacles - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Describing it from my insight and depiction,
Is not as easy when others are accustomed...
To charades that masquerade truth and honesty.

In younger years I did feel isolated.
I felt berated and uncomfortable.
And treated to believe I was weak.

But those who challenge their obstacles,
Eventually dissolves them.
To unmask those culprits shaking in their boots.
And with trembling knees seen unbelieving.

Strength that goes undisplayed,
May mean a strength is in waiting...
For the right way to expose itself,
To show it doesn't hesitate in vain.
