Qualifying Your Worth
Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar
You may create competition.
To do on your own turf,
With a qualifying your worth...
As you compare your doings,
To others unfamiliar...
With your selected environment.
But this is not a competition.
This is a revealing of your ego.
And with the hope you choose,
The right competitor.
That will leave you and your insecurities,
Free to maintain the keeping of 'your' self praise.
