No One Should Assume

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

No one should take,
Anyone's patience and tolerance
As a display of weakness.

No one should perceive,
An easy going attitude...
Comes from one inexperienced.
Naive or innocent,
To the facts of life.
With a proving continued,
Comments made with disrespect..
Are overlooked or not heard,
As if to go unnoticed.
Unremembered to forget.

No one should assume,
What's done to do to others...
Impresses to not to leave,
The mind left mentally checked.
As if what is kept is stored,
On an always reliable roledex.
Collects dust upon it.
To eventually ignore.
How presumptuous we often get.

Even children,
Making first steps...
Seldom forget,
Where obstacles are.
To choose to remove.
Or...
Strategically plan one day,
The best way...
What has repeatedly annoyed!
