With A Toiling Done - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

I have been writing for so long,
The act of it is not premeditated.
It is who I am.
Something I do I understand.
And it is a gift I am grateful,
To have and be blessed with.
Some assume what I do is easy,
Because I express such love for it.

But if I had ever felt it easy...
I would find it not a challenge.
Like many who sit,
Wishing for assistance...
To confront their challenges,
They find themselves faced with.
Misunderstanding that it is 'love'...
That benefits with a toiling done of it.
