Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar
Take away what everyday is taken for granted,
To prickle the comfort of anyone...
And guess what happens?
A cherished gratefulness automatically begins.
With an immediate effectiveness that starts,
To never end.
And a pettiness once bemoaned,
Suddenly becomes known...
As a display of childishness.
Assisting many to graduate to empathy.
With a giving of expressed patience.
Some never knew they could achieve.
