Thank God I Do

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

I've been famous...
Infamous, defamed and dismissed!
I've sat to be spat upon by a few,
To forget and forgive and then kissed!

And I've dropped to the bottom,
To crawl painfully back to the top!
And I've dropped to the bottom,
To crawl painfully back to the top!
In a monotonous cycle...
That have flipped flopped more than not!

Several times I've obtained possessions...
To discard or leave behind.
With many successes and regrets of regresses.
With lessons coming difficult...
Back to back some came sometimes!

And today I'm very proud to say,
How blessed I know I am!
My life could be a whole lot worse
Than those who curse theirs...
Not sharing or caring or giving a damn!
I thank God I do!
