Take It And Like It

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

Take it and like it...
With a facing of each mistake you make.
And take it and like it...
A bitterness to taste to let fade.
Open up your mind,
And from this...
Walk away.

Take it and like it...
A lesson learned you wish to evade.
And take it and like it...
With a knowing for you it's not too late,
To occupy your mind with wanting...
Not to escape.
Or wish to vacate...
The gift.
Of life.
That God to you gave.

Take it and like it...
Defying time you find just to whine.
And take and like it...
That step deciding you'll cross that line,
To leave behind excuses not to use but decline...
Thinking you've been picked by disappointment.

Take it and like it...
A lesson learned you wish to evade.
And take it and like it...
With a knowing for you it's not too late,
To occupy your mind with wanting...
Not to escape.
Or wish to vacate...
The gift.
Of life.
That God to you gave.

Take it and like it...
With a facing of each mistake you make.
And take it and like it...
A bitterness to taste to let fade.
Open up your mind,
And from this...
Walk away.
Do it now.
Don't delay.

Take it and like it...
That test you get determined to pass.
Take it and like it...
Whatever the test and with it the task.
Take it and like it...
To know the taste of it will not last.
Obstacles are to be used to wisen.
Take it and like it.
Stop trying to fight it.

Take it and like it.
You can do that or you can refuse.
Take it and like it.
You can do that or you can refuse.
Take it and like it.
You can do that or you can refuse.
But to take it gets it quicker out your way.
