Thank You For Ringing That Bell
Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar
You constantly would ask for my opinion.
And nothing that I have suggested,
Has stuck in your head like glue.
After years of discussing your insecurities...
I have one suggestion left,
I'd like to offer you.
Collect all of your excuses.
And reuse each one if you have to.
Your speeches of change,
And admitting this is true...
Makes no difference to me anymore,
What it is you do!
I've learned not to pay any attention to you at all.
And waking up to that realization,
Has taught me this lesson...
If someone can accept,
One's show of disrespect...
And not think that could be...
A possibility that leads,
To the beginning of one's downfall?
Stalling in hesitation creates the implementation.
And I thank you for ringing that bell.
Because I have finally awakened,
To answered the call.
