When Heard - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

I was told to approach them.
To tell them what the deal was.
And I was laughed at.

I did not give up.
I sacrificed my time to give to them.
And I was laughed at.

I healed from illinesses,
With pain felt from mending.
And still I was laughed at.

Now I laugh with feelings of being blessed.
And few think my laughter loud,
When heard...
Is funny!
