Our Lives Are On Different Journeys
Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar
Let's make this an agreement,
If you are feeling miserable and feeling pitiful.
And we happen to cross each other's paths,
No offense should you take IF...
I just don't want you walking next to me.
I don't want the air that I breathe,
Or the atmosphere surrounding me polluted...
By any hint of approaching negativity.
If we can...
Understand that between us,
We will always generate respect...
Knowing our lives are on different journeys.
And maybe one day,
You and I can sit and discuss our experiences.
Our boats are not floating,
On the same wavelength intended.
