Tough Love - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

You're stuck in thickened muck,
And you want to give up.
The muck you're stuck in...
Isn't budging.

And on your mind bad luck,
You're accustomed to cuss.
But,
That stuff you're cussing...
Only you began.

You made a choice,
To bottled up your stuff.
You made decisions without thinking.

And...
You've had enough.
But you chose to have it rough.
There is no exit when you're given,
Tough love.

When you get out,
You'll remember it...
As tough love!
Tough love.
Tough love.
