You - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

You...
Got it to keep going on.
And you...
Got it so strong.
Yes you...
Do it to deliver,
Night and day long...
Tracks to place and with them made,
To prove whose wrong.

From the bottom,
You've inched towards the top.
And, from the bottom,
You went around blocks.
To leave the bottom and those startled,
With a nonstop.

Nothing that you do,
Is without a purpose.
Nothing that you do,
Is without effect.
Nothing that you do,
Is done without a reason.
Even your mistakes made,
You correct and chase away.

Nothing that you do,
Is without a purpose.
Nothing that you do,
Is without effect.
Nothing that you do,
Is done without a reason.
Even your mistakes made,
You correct and chase away.

You...
Got it to keep going on.
And you...
Got it so strong.
Yes you...
Do it to deliver,
Night and day long...
Tracks to place and with them made,
To prove whose wrong.

You...
Keep your faith effective.
And you,
Don't second guess your steps.
Yes you,
Are a student of your lessons...
You did not sleep through those sessions.

You...
Got it to keep going on.
And you...
Got it so strong.
Yes you...
Do it to deliver,
Night and day long...
Tracks to place and with them made,
To prove whose wrong.

You...
Keep your faith effective.
And you,
Don't second guess your steps.
Yes you,
Are a student of your lessons...
You did not sleep through those sessions.
