I Have Learned From Similar Experiences
If it should seem,
by Lawrence S. Pertillar
I appear to be free...
To laugh with happiness.
And share with others,
An empathy felt that is deep.
With a tear to dropp from my eyes,
But not to turn on with a full weeping.
I have learned from similar experiences,
And now I can express with acknowlegement,
I have grown to yearn for more of this life to live.
