Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar
I 'had' been in those relationships,
With those who thought of me as competition.
And that became unfortunate for them.
Since I was in it for companionship.
Someone to share and experience life with.
But when I began to realize,
How I was regarded...
Something within me had to prove,
Who would win in the end...
Since when challenged,
I am highly competitive and choose to leave...
All my opponents alone and in amazement.
