Difficult It Is
So difficult it is,
by Lawrence S. Pertillar
For many people to grow up.
With a accepting of responsibility,
As part of the process.
Since some would prefer to exchange,
For a playing of games.
And hoping to place blame,
On others to accuse.
To claim themselves victims abused.
So difficult it is for many people to grow up.
And some may find themselves stuck in ruts.
Depending on denials.
To excuse in arguments to protect their 'butts'.
One mature learns early to face obstacles.
No matter who says or does what,
To create reasons that the doing of such...
Offends those hiding behind their misdeeds,
Like children weeping to convince of their innocence.
