Whatever Needs To Happen - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
Can't live a happy life
With a chip on your shoulder.
Or with beliefs that someone owes you...
Because you've gone 'without'
As you grew older!
Many folks struggle,
Just to be thankful to be alive.
While other ones criticize,
All those with a 9 to 5!
You simply can't live a happy life...
With most of it spent
Hustling in 'jive'!
Wanting to live a happy life deserved,
Means to sacrifice the time you now waste...
Sitting on your butt,
Thinking you have reasons to be served!
And getting up to leave your playground
With your head buried in sand.
Believing someone will hear your cries.
You have to work!
Sometimes unappreciated for whatever it is you do!
Sometimes thick in mud...
Sweating your worth eating much dirt!
Whatever needs to happen 'for you'
You need to make it happen 'for you' first!
