Too Impatient To Earn It - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

The pretending of being offended,
To convince others...
They too should defend,
What someone else has said about them...
Just to get attention,
Becomes as easy as a child to do...
Who is ignored by older children,
Playing together on the other side of a fence...
Being constantly annoyed,
By a kid who wishes this experience.
But too impatient to earn it.
Or know how maturity effects the growth process.
