Tough Love

You're stuck in thickened muck,
And you want to give up.
The muck you're stuck in...
Isn't budging.

And on your mind bad luck,
You're accustomed to cuss.
But,
That stuff you're cussing...
Only you began.

You made a choice,
To bottled up your stuff.
You made decisions without thinking.

And...
You've had enough.
But you chose to have it rough.
There is no exit when you're given,
Tough love.

When you get out,
You'll remember it...
As tough love!
Tough love.
Tough love.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

True Freedom

Freedom imitated,
Can never be a freedom...
Manifested to appreciate.
It would be underrated sooner or later.
With a taste for it to ultimately fade.

Not analyzed is a freedom to connive.
Or diminished in masquerade...
For purposes to degrade its meaning.
Freedom has to be at one's own pace.
To know what it takes to keep it salivated.

Freedom is not minimized.
True freedom is always maximized,
To realize its value.
And never is it in a race to chase,
To regulate another's fate.

True freedom is never ruled to control.
True freedom is a flowing one has,
And knows...
Freedom,
For what it is and felt!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Trying A Way To Fit In

Every morning that I am blessed to have awakened,
I am in the classroom and prepared to be tested.
And if I didn't regard my life that way,
I'd be struggling with the feeling of failure
On a daily basis.
And
If I did not think or believe
I had an opportunity before me,
To improve upon my weak performances...
I'd be afraid to appear on stage
when I left my place of comfort.
Every morning.

However.
Before I do any of that.
And forget I am constantly teased and tempted,
By the trappings of life.
I express my gratitude to 'whatever' it is,
That has granted me 'consciousness' about this process.
Because I know if I didn't have it
I'd be rushing to a psychologist helping me find a way to fit in.

And I will not blame any of this craziness I've witnessed on God.
Even though an awareness of what is going on is inescapable.

And those trying a way to fit in,
To satisfy others with their accomplishments and possessions...
Seem not to be able to acquire happiness.
So glad am I.
When I discovered I could not purchase happiness after years of trying,
I was relieved.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Turn Up the Heat

You want me to turn up the heat?
I can only oblige you.
However,
I want it understood...
This action made,
Was at your request.
Protect yourself.
I will not be held responsible,
For your burns.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
