Despised For Taking Heat

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

'I can't stay here.
I realize my life,
Should be a priority to take...
Much more seriously.'

It is so difficult to be,
In a position of leadership.
With it done expected to please,
Every decision made to be accepted.

Respect may not be always given,
To the one who leads.
Often alone and neglecting their own needs.
Just to appease those who judge and critique.

And from seats to sit,
With arms folded and twisted lips.
Many are prepared to backbite.
To not know what it's like to sacrifice.

Or...
Stand up from seats where they sit,
Without whispering but to commit...
With a voice that is heard to speak.
Regardless if despised for taking heat.

'I can't stay here.
I realize my life,
Should be a priority to take...
Much more seriously.'

~But wait!
We made a decision,
You are the only one qualified to lead us.~

'And I made the decision,
Not to qualify myself...
The one who can prove,
I can be backstabbed to then laugh.
And leave you glad I've been made crazed?
I suggest you return to the picket lines.
Since my time and life ahead,
To spend these days...
Will find me more appreciative to live it.
You all are out of your 'corrupt' up minds.'
