Taking Those Tests
I am not blessed to live each day,
by Lawrence S. Pertillar
To look forward as I trace my pace...
Looking back on those steps I have made.
I've graduated from taking those tests.
Those tests to compare with others seeking 'A's.
I've been blessed not to seek approval like that.
Although I will admit to having doubts and regrets,
When I discovered my steps taken...
Were then done with a loneliness,
My faith with prayers answered kept my mind focused.
And as I reflect to reminisce as I sometimes do,
I'm glad I just spend minutes to do this...
Instead of putting emphasis,
On what others thought I should do to pursue...
With a doing to refuse to make excuses.
