Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

The only advice I would give to someone?
Someone who has not lived and yet been stung?
Someone who has not experienced obstacles,
Or believe they can live without facing one?
Or being bitten by defeat...
Even while crawling to stand onto their own two feet.
Most times doing that publicly!
And having no family or friends to plead in defense.
Or to protect or shelter agonies wept repeatedly.

Lets see...
The only advice I would give to someone?
Would be none!
And they would eventually understand,
That was the best advice to them I gave!

No tasks are completed on free passes.
Although many believe they can succeed,
By hopping the fence.

To later realize,
They have no idea what game is being played.
Or how to go about pretending they do!
To who they'll try to fool to play incompetently.
There's enough mediocrity already certifiable,
On several fields of endeavor.
So none would be my best advice to give.

Which liars deny,
They did or did not tell...
