To Step Aside And Express Pride - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Anyone who has ever experienced,
Having influence over someone else...
To be done effectively to leave that one,
With a promising effectiveness for that one to come...
Seldom is the one with a known influence,
Regrets or wishes to remain competitive...
With express envy or jealousy to give.

When respect is given and time moves on,
A freshness kept should be welcomed.
And one who acknowledges this,
Does not regret to step aside to then express pride.
To realize in the doing...
This is just as effective.
As one comes to witness that which reflects.

Although...
There are many who can not bring themselves,
To do that...respectfully!
And in the midst of updated freshness,
They seek attention to get...
With moves that 'use' to influence and no longer prevail.
To only prove themselves with moves done that are stale.
