To Step Away From Ourselves - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

We all have our 'ways' about ourselves.
And to evaluate with appreciation,
Just who it is we believe we are
Takes a time given,
To step away from ourselves.
With a beginning of a critique,
As if under a microscope.
No matter how uncomfortable it is.

And,
Few do this on a daily basis or at all.
That's why many find time to criticize others.
Voicing their disappointments.
Not realizing
That a self confidence that strides in steps of pride,
Is not seeking to hide
Behind definitions of limitations.
