I Am 'Not' That Intelligent
So blessed am I to know with conviction,
by Lawrence S. Pertillar
I am 'not' that intelligent enough to be persuaded...
I should accept confusion as a way of life.
Or perceive I have solutions or answers to solve,
Dilemmas conflicting beliefs otehrs have adopted.
To digest a series of ongoing disappointments.
I am not here to carry those burdens,
To account for responsibilites not mine to bear.
A good politician or diplomat I have never claimed to be.
I will acknowledge a gratefulness to having one ability.
And that has afforded me with a capability to reject,
And with a doing of it to care less,
Who or whomever may object...
To whatever it is I may choose to do.
Since a seeking of an approval for the steps I take,
Has never been my 'thing' to deny or fake.
For some reason I admit the making of my mistakes.
