After Lessons Have Been Taught

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

After lessons have been taught...
Step aside and take pride.
There is nothing else anyone can teach,
That increases a comprehension...
With an exchanging of thoughts misunderstood.
Or an experience to guarantee a life lived with ease,
Is obtained through questions.
No matter what the answers are,
Another wishes to hear and be pleased.

Brand new shoes worn,
On an unchartered path to pave...
Takes effort and time to break them in.
And often they are not replaced,
For those fresh impressions one wishes to make!
A sacrificing of hurting feet,
Is part of life and has to be accepted...
IF one desires success to achieve.
Or feel neglected 'if' ideals envisioned are rejected.

'I'm not going 'anywhere' if I have to walk.'

~And whose back are you going to ride on?
In the belief you'll be carried to keep dust off your shoes.~

'My resume and potential will speak for itself.'

~That's great.
And hopefully those who will decide your fate,
Are not only deaf, dumb and blind...
But also will beg of 'your' time,
To allow them to keep the shine on your shoes.~

'Well...
If I keep my fingers crossed,
I just might find that right connection.'

~And more lessons to learn to acquire wisdom and experience,
To certify you have qualified for your obtained humility.
Life is what you make it and 'not' what you demand.~

'Please!
I've graduated with honors.
And scored high marks in 'philosophy'.'

After lessons have been taught.
And busy hallways of schools left to leave behind,
Many will discover they have become distraught...
By a reality disbelieved to confront a truth they come to find.

'Well...
If I keep my fingers crossed,
I just might find that right connection.'

~That's great.
And hopefully those who will decide your fate,
Are not only deaf, dumb and blind...
But also will beg of 'your' time,
To allow them to keep the shine on your shoes.
And your attire always fresh to address those impressed.~

After lessons have been taught...
Step aside and take pride.
There is nothing else anyone can teach,
That increases a comprehension.
