With Each Plateau Reached
With each plateau reached,
by Lawrence S. Pertillar
A piece of one's life is left behind...
A greater experience that leaves,
Someone or something regretted.
Someone or something felt neglected.
But growth is just what that is.
A growth seldom occurs,
Without shedding some tears.
And a grief that eventually teaches.
With a mission that continues,
To be personally journeyed.
