Stop Your Complaining

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

Come here and listen!
You can pretend to ignore.
But leave your ears open.
Close your mouth.
Those eyes?
You can roll them as before.

It 'may' look as if doors are being shut.
But they aren't,
Not at all!
Those opportunities,
That once knocked at them?
Are in your mind...
Where you have kept them stored!

That's where they have always been.
You were the one to let them out!
And you will bring them back in,
So don't believe what is being locked out,
Means for your tears to descend.
Those doors needed to close on you,
To allow greater things for you to happen!

Now is the time to test your faith!
Not to wallow in despair,
And welcome heartbreak!
Snap out of limitations.
Explore new avenues you can take!
At least stop your complaining.
A difference only you can make!
