(not) My Objective

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

Doing less than my best,
Is not my objective.
My objective with this confessed,
Is to prevail until I have passed...
Any test to me given I had failed.

Facing opposition,
Has become an appetizer for me.
I've been conditioned to resolve,
My own problems to solve.
To endeavor with effort,
A creating of my own opportunities.

I can not claim myself to be clever.
Or born mysteriously wise.
Although my curiosity leaves me wishing,
What I discover to uncover...
This could be revealed to others,
Before I am accused of making up lies.
And I try not to despise people like that.

I was taught to use whatever knowledge I obtain.
And refrain from seeking excuses,
To blame on others with convenient accusations.
And insecurities I still have not to deny them,
For purpose to hide them as if they did not exist.
Since my objective is to be honest,
First to myself to admit it with commitment.

Doing less than my best,
Is not my objective.
My objective with this confessed,
Is to prevail until I have passed...
Any test to me given I had failed.
And I will not be subjected to failure.
At least...
Not to portray it to have it believed.
