Of Those Experiences
You have every right in the keeping of your beliefs.
by Lawrence S. Pertillar
And to quote from notes of those who lecture,
From pulpits to pedestals in speeches that preach.
You will not find me defending my own beliefs,
To convince anyone in debates that become heated...
Of those experiences to me that have come.
Leaving each one personalized to identify the origin.
And not one of those experiences,
Were achieved by the taking of notes to quote.
Or the rehearsing of that which I should,
Or should not have done in the process of my learning.
