Causes And Affects

Not into that community madness thing.
You know...
The kind that unifies with speeches for peace,
Two hours after a fresh drive by?
Complete with domestic violence,
And silent prayer vigils.
With tear stained faces...
To mask the commonplace,
Disrespect and self neglect!

Somehow...
Those re-inactments,
Squeezes from me...
Every last dropp of joy I have.
For a round of aging sentiments?
Complete with Bible thumpers...
Singing hymns with scriptures preached.
And these same folks can't speak to me,
When they pass me on the streets?

Someone's not receiving the message,
And what can and should be done!
To 'overcome'!
But guess whose steps moves away from this mess!
Divorced and totally agitation free?
Appealing to my peace of mind...
I find belongs to me these days!

Can you see in my eyes the absence of 'craze'?
I wish I could share with you more of it.
But it took too long to arrive.
And I value that...
Much more than recycled efforts!

Truth in reassessment!
That's my daily affirmation!
And your approach...
Has problems dealing with the causes and affects,
Of a perfected ignorance!
If folks don't wish to know...
Or care about their own growth.
How many marches do you think it will take...
For them to locate an identity that unifies,
An acceptance of self?
Before or after 'Lifting Every Voice in Song'?

It is rumored,
Harriet Tubman only had a flashlight,
To lead folks out of the darkness!
Today...
Everyone has a cellphone.
And 'still' can not comprehend,
A text message sent!

And I rush to get a monthly bus pass,
To keep it real and freshly communicated.
With...

'Commuters'?

Exactly!
And free of surcharges.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Cautioned

Cautioned has to be that one,
Who has come to rely on...
What others say they must do to get done.

And anyone who lives in fear,
Of everything on their path that appears...
Will never know what it takes to celebrate life.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Cavalcade Of Scars

It shouldn't take a parading,
Of a cavalcade of scars...
To display on a daily basis.
To detect the affects...
Are not inflicted upon them,
From those locked up behind prison bars.

A reception of acceptance done,
With performances to exude an intelligence...
That explains why painful events exist,
Without intervening to prevent any of it.
And yet they purchase more weapons to get,
To protect their freedoms with a selfish ignorance.

A common sense is not mentioned.
And seems to offend those behind fences.
Although an attention is given,
To those parading in a cavalcade to display their scars...
With answers to their questions,
They refuse to face.

Or eliminate a targeted hatred,
Found in their own backyards.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Ce Que Je Veux Faire (What I Want To Do)

Je vous cherche.
Non oω ne font je vois...
Ce sourire qui rit,
Exprimer ces yeux de danse.

Je longtemps pour vous tenir,
Enveloppι dans mes bras.
Lΰ vous devez libιrer votre odeur.
Lΰ nous nous assoyons sur la terrasse,
Donner sur Paris et au-delΰ.
Comme nous rκvons de l'amour pour nous garder romantiques.

What I Want To Do

I look for you.
No where do I see...
That smile that laughs,
To express those dancing eyes.

I long to hold you,
Enfolded within my arms.
There you are to release your scent.
There we are sitting upon the terrace,
Overlooking Paris and beyond.
As we dream of love to keep us romantic.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
