Totally Obligated - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

When I walk,
I may be talking.
And,
To those who notice I am alone...
Alone I'm not!
For several blocks.

I let my 'guides' who are spiritual,
Lead.
They clear my path of obstacles.
Some unknown or to me shown.
It works.
This method succeeds.

Although I'm cautious,
Caution doesn't control my life.
I'm too excited by it.
And delighted I am...
Night and day.

I will never live my life feeling uptight!
Or spend my peace of mind...
Wide awake.
When rest is needed...
And sleep requires my time.

So...
When I walk,
I may be talking.

And,
To those who notice I am alone...
Alone I'm not!
For several blocks.

Until I stop...
To then answer questions asked.
Hey,
What can I say?
I feel totally obligated that way.
