Whatever Initiates Your Motivation
Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar
What is wrong with you?
You have just been slandered.
Your good deeds done diminished.
Your character is daily assassinated.
And you can smile like that?
Do you know how long it has taken me,
To gain the attention of those who deceive?
This is the most refreshing time of my life.'
I think you're nuts!
'Thank you very much.
And if I had no value to place on your opinion,
I'd be devastated by your remarks.
As long as you believe I am crazed,
We will remain the best of friends.'
Why do you do what you do?
It makes no sense to me.
'Whatever initiates your motivation,
Has nothing to do with how I get mine.
