You Are Overdue - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

If you are enforcing your own limitations...
It is a waste of time to get upset,
Regretting others are not impressed...
To share what you address.

And 'if' someone has had it with your wishes,
To daily repeat what has been heard...
They do you a favor,
By telling you 'you' have gotten on their nerves.

And if after years they say nothing to you at all.
Or choose to eliminate any remnants of contact.
You should gift them with a nice present.
Since indirectly they have said to you,
Loud and clear...
Alone time in silence,
Is what is needed for you to hear...
'You are overdue to become introduced to truth.'

And this they can no longer prove...
Or argue against a self inflicting stubbornness.
What you need is something,
They can not 'knock' into your head!
Done they are...
With any more attempts to justify their patience.

You are overdue for a self examination.
One that is stripped away from pretensions.
