For Kicks

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

Let me just say this for 'kicks'.
There is a reason 'why' your problems exist.
And done with a conscious enjoyment.

You have been in the center of all of it.
You are making claims like the others,
To have fallen asleep to get rest.
While someone else commanded your ship.

And as it was allowed to drift,
You were lulled into a deeper noninvolvement.
It's an excuse so many make...
To accuse others for their mistakes!
And staying awake creates the taking of effort!
An effort that escapes from your self-assessment.
