Finding Words to Define Regret

Be not me,
When I'm with you?
Is that what you're saying,
You see me do?

But not me,
Is that one who is...
Doing the best to collect regrets,
With an attitude that's negative.

We do and we don't,
And most times it's ignored.
We can be under one roof...
Yet behind separate doors.

I am he
You once adored.
The one committed
To adventure
We said we'd explore?

We're on different shores...
Together.

Be not 'me',
When I'm with you?
Is that what you're saying,
You see me do?

But not me,
Is that one who is...
Doing the best to collect regrets,
With an attitude that's negative.

Only you helped me decide...
That part of me you took for granted,
Had to heal and mend when my eyes opened.
I was happy when that happened.
I wanted us both to see the same sunset...
Holding hand and hand facing the horizon.

But not me,
Is that one who is...
Doing the best to collect regrets,
With an attitude that's negative.

Sometimes that would be both of us...
Disgusted together.

But I'm not about that anymore,
Anytime soon!
Be not me! ?
The ME
When I'm with you?
Is that what you're saying,
You see me do?

We do and we don't,
And most times it's ignored.
We can be under one roof...
Yet behind separate doors..
Disgusted and distrusting both of us,
Together.
Reminiscing the worse,
Of one once adored.

This is not love,
Baiting a mating match...
At all.
And yet time we waste,
Finding words to define regret!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Fit As A Fiddle

Mentally fit as a fiddle,
With minds like solid rock.
Fit as a fiddle,
And determind not to stop.
Mentally fit as a fiddle,
And removing that which blocks...
Experience gained and abilities known.
Earned with a doing from bottom to top.

People disciplined have no intentions to end,
What they've started just to drop.
While mopping up their sobbing tears.
And wept from expressing their created fears.
Mentally fit as a fiddle,
People like this are rarely heard to quibble...
Over facing obstacles to bicker,
In tit for tats to argue back.

Fit as a fiddle,
With minds like solid rock.
Mentally fit as a fiddle,
And determind not to stop.
Fit as a fiddle,
And removing that which blocks...
Experience and abilities gained,
Earned with a doing from bottom to top.
To prove with a doing what they are.
Regardless who believes what they are not!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Freedom and Right to Enjoy Life

Shallow are those joys bought on good credit.
And gifts expected to remain treasured forever.
That just does not happen...
When temptations tease to release,
Greed from us.
To toss about a tantrum or two,
Thrown to hook a guilty conscious.
And how can we teach children to be patient,
To receive a success for hard work applied?
When adults are observed crying daily...
About 'things' they can not buy to satisfy,
Whims they don't need but believe they can afford!
Everyone ignores the freedom and right to enjoy life.
It is always someone else's fault why they can not buy it!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Freedoms Now Enjoyed

They wish for him not to win.
They say with him,
The government would rule,
Every aspect of our lives.
They say with him,
The government would end...
Freedoms now enjoyed!

Which of those 'freedoms' now enjoyed,
Are not taxed by the government?
With or without him winning!

Unless they speak of the breath,
We now breathe.
Increasingly polluted.
With no decrease of greed that feeds it.
And he who runs to end this need...
They say he is without experience to lead!
Although an hypocriscy keeps them bleeding.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
