You Will Remember My Strength
Remember that door
by Lawrence S. Pertillar
You closed on me?
Remember my grief,
You enjoyed seeing me release?
Remember the moans from my anguish,
It's your turn to wear that suit.
And like me...
You will not find your needs or wishes,
Or to mean anything,
By those unimpressed.
And you will not experience it...
The rejection I lived with!
But you will remember my strength.
Since it came to become my own to contain.
With much less support...
You campaigned to gain,
To silence your collection of whimpers.
