We All Have Different Approaches - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Why do you climb the stairs,
To then intentionally fall down them.
To repeat that over again?

'I am practicing rejection.
I like to believe I am being pro-active,
About these things.
You know...
Reaching the top!
To then fall down.

Perhaps it was best,
You did not seek from anyone their advice.

'I want to learn from my own experiences.'

I took a different route.
But we all have different approaches,
To achieve similar results in the end.
I use to bang my head up against the walls.

'I'm not into that kind of pain.
That's too melodramatic.
I don't wont to be emotionally attached,
To my rejection.
That's why I am practicing not to be involved.
Hopefully I will experience less traumatic affects.'

Keep practicing.
I'm sure you will learn something,
That will eventually be suitable and life changing for you.
If you should live through your 'rehearsals',
Without breaking your neck.
