With Wishes To Live A Wholesome Life - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

One addicted,
To the foolishness...
Of someone else,
As if hooked to a need...
Deserves to be abused.
This is excused.

No one is born to do this,
As if a prerequisite...
To live a wholesome life.

One with wishes to live a wholesome life,
Let's it known and quick...
Disrespect accepted,
They will have none of it.
Or tolerate its appearance when shown.
