What It Has Taken - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

I am going to do the best I can,
With what I've got.
Rate it, deflate it
Do whatever it is with it you wish.
Since I'm the only one
Who knows what it has taken,
To pull myself together.
With a cementing done of loose pieces,
Now that strongly in a oneness fit.

Based upon determination,
And making up my own mind.
To get up the nerve,
To get off my butt and do it.

Rate it, deflate it
Do whatever it is with it you wish.
Nothing at this stage of the game,
Will introduce an obstacle.
I will dare to face and do it quick.

I am the only one who knows,
What it has taken
To get off my butt to do it!
With a disregarding of all kinds of ailments.
Or who believed or thought what,
With a speaking of it to exchange idle gossip.
That assisted my motivation to persevere,
And persist regardless of opposition quipped.
Turn up the heat I want to dance and move my feet.
Oh yeah!
