Talked About - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Much easier it is,
To talk about someone.
Than it is to be the one,
Talked about...
From gossiped mouths.
While lounging around,
On a couch in their house.

Usually those with determination,
And backbone...
Are often alone with a commitment shown.
Then to be judged and critiqued,
After a task that has driven them...
To successfully complete has been done.
With a doing some find unacceptable.

Much easier it is,
To talk about someone.
Than it is to be the one,
Talked about...
From gossiped mouths.
While lounging around,
On a couch in their house.

Not too many today,
Will make a decision to do unafraid.
Since many seek advice and opinions,
From others who are quick to express doubt.

Usually those with determination,
And backbone...
Are often alone with a commitment shown.
Then to be judged and critiqued,
After a task that has driven them...
To successfully complete has been done.
With a doing some find unacceptable.
