An Achievement Like This One Accomplished
Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar
To sit on the top of a heap,
That has been achieved...
Through dedicated and disciplined activity,
One can only feel an accomplishment.
A sacrifice that has been done and validation.
And, without question, observed!
And if anyone has ever witnessed,
A panoramic view from a summit...
It is not the leaving it that saddens.
It's the forgetting of bringing along a camera,
To take pictures of a scene...
Even the doer had doubts would ever be seen!
An achievement like this one accomplished...
Will never be taken away from one's memory.
The wishing for it has been lived.
