Greater Than Most

Challenges are many.
And those balls some juggle,
Are greater than most.

The steps it takes to move forward,
Seem weighted and thick.
As if the paths those journey,
Must be done with the carrying...
Of a ton of bricks.

Yet,
There is a light that shines...
With an easing of tensions.
There is a fresh breeze that blows,
To cool and dry the wetness of sweat.

And even though the challenges of many,
That are faced.
There is a place of rest to reflect...
The rewards of continuing on.

With an achieving of success...
Those determined and motivated,
Feel within themselves and get!

Challenges are many.
And those balls some juggle,
Are greater than most.
Yet,
There is a light that shines...
With an easing of tensions.

With an achieving of success...
Those determined and motivated,
Feel within themselves and get!

Harvest Like Golden Crops

Keep doing what you are doing!
And stay in one spot.
Eventually 'someone' will be curious...
And will stop to see what you've got!
If you keep that interesting...
Enough to make it worth their while.
Soon others will be attracted too,
And will offer to pay you a lot to stockpile.
If not...
Take care of all your wants and needs,
To harvest like golden crops!
Leaving you with a bright shining smile!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

He Rode On a Bus

Since he rode on a bus,
They believed him to be without powerful allies.
Since he rode on a bus,
They believed him to be limited in influence.
Since he rode on a bus,
And lived amongst the poor and not the rich...
He was disrespected more.
But only a few knew,
His worth was more than this.
Even though his funds were limited.

And since he chose to ride on a bus,
He knew he could do what he wished.
His life was not lived to acquire material possessions.
His life was lived for him...
To enjoy every bit of it.
Being there with the people,
As his experience.
And if he rode on a bus...
That was a piece of 'his' happiness.
No explanations did he have to make,
Since for him this was a perfect fit.
Unlike the others,
Who expressed pretentions...
Every chance they would get.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Health Care

If I am not aware...
Who else can I fault,
For not being there?
And more conscious,
Of my own health care.

To show a responsibility,
Upon my neglect!
And an absent mindedness...
I have chosen to reflect,
With a disrespect accepted.

Who should I hold accountable?
Insured or not!
Since I have been too busy.
With no time to stop!
Or keep informed.

Who should I accuse for my illnesses?
Or new infections created and born.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
