Proper And/Or Acceptible Public Etiquette!

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

I try to release from my consciousness,
Those painful images fixed...
We all can say we survived,
But still live with.

And the only time I am reminded I have them...
Is when someone says,
I should raise and not lower my head...
To quicker dry those tears I cry!
And to wear a smile on my face instead.
With no clue...
Or point of reference,
From which I feel such depth!
Coming as it does...
When it happens,
Delivered from my point of view.

And I do my best not to express...
That these are 'my' heartfelt agonies.
When upon me,
They choose to come to visit!

And not one moment am I in thought...
With wishes to entertain,
Proper and/or acceptible public etiquette!
