When You Know Yourself - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
Don't wonder about it!
Things have changed for you,
When you have passed your own image,
From a storefront window.
And you return to get a second look.
Believing you saw someone you recognized,
As you were strolling by.
And you stop to stare.
Realizing you still do.
It's just that you have spent too much time,
On the outside.
And you smile...
Feeling happy you are blessed.
Knowing so many are upset...
With the affects of aging.
Step spryly away.
As someone waves to get your attention,
With a grin to convince...
You can spend your last dime,
On something you can least afford.
When you know yourself....
There is little else you need!
