Performing To Do Well
Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar
How can anyone have an understanding,
To believe they can achieve success...
Without some knowledge obtained,
From the performing arts.
There has not been a time,
What one does had not been defined...
By some kind of expectation of performance.
It doesn't have to be on a stage.
Or left less spectacular behind a desk.
One's performance is noticed and is inspected.
If one can not comprehend the meaning meant,
Of performing to do well with this intended...
And those in positions qualified to know,
Are not accustomed to upholding mediocrity...
As a guideline wished to be followed.
To leave those believing an earned college degree,
Automatically guarantees them a deserving of success...
Usually become the ones highly upset,
When told they must first identify success to recognize it
Then apply the definition of it to the quality of their work.
