Being Sassy Is In My Genes

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

As a result of declaring,
My prerogative.
The knots and bruises,
Once appearing on my thick head.
Have cleared.

A reluctant introduction to patience,
Stood in my way.
And dared me to move.
I felt a wobbling in my legs.
And my feet froze too.

Blessed I was to have been made to listen.

That prerogative of mine,
With a braggadociousness.
In my mind I defined has gone.
And I'm glad it has.
But that sass I still have remains to alarm.
I was once told by my mom.
Being sassy is in my genes.
