You Have No Idea
No recognition today to me you can give,
by Lawrence S. Pertillar
Will change the facts of my life.
Or your attempts made to discredit,
And diminish them.
With a doing to have them eliminated,
As if my memory and emotions can be subtracted.
My experiences and my mind are not detached.
And no apologies you can mention,
With a doing to bestow upon me your attention...
Will not return time to give me back.
My faith and kept belief has taken care of that.
And I want you to remember this...
If you perceive I should be and show to you,
Gratitude, a bowed head and a dropping of a tear...
Not an eye will you see a dripping to drop appear!
You have no idea or a clue how many times my lips,
Have healed from being bitten with a licking of the blood.
