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.
