Treasure Island

Lawrence S. Pertillar

(February/'47 / Connecticut, USA)

Effort Takes


Just a wish supported by initiative.
And a desire driven by a crave.
Effort takes,
A willingness to dismiss opposition.
With refusing discouragement,
To adopt to adapt as if welcomed.
Effort takes,
Faith.
Effort takes,
Motivation unshakened.
Effort takes,
Being unafraid to make mistakes.
And an acceptance of those who critique,
Since they will be all over the place.
Effort takes,
Identifying to stop doubts.
With a knowing what is wanted,
Blocks doubts out.
