Unnoticed To Be Noticed

Lawrence S. Pertillar 2947 (Connecticut)

Whatever you believe,
You had been attempting to achieve.
All these many years.
With a doing to waste your time.
To accomplish nothing to claim,
An obtaining of success.
No one knew a fool like you,
Could ever do.
No matter how many lifetimes,
You live to get.
Wasting valuable time.
Doing such foolishness.

Will still ignore,
Your efforts to endeavor.
Whatever it is fools do to wish.
Even if the impossibility of that,
Should ever happen.
For anyone to discover or mention it!

That difference,
You expect me to anticipate and notice?
Would be...
Will I be given a clue or a hint?
Should I await patiently?
To recognize and believe,
Your ignoring me is different.
Than what has been done before.
Until that achievement reached...
Impossible for me to seek.
Has been successfully ignored.
When and if I am blessed to get done.

Please, by all means,
Keep me posted, will you?
I would hate to be ignored or miss this.
Without being notified and told about it!
