  3997.     

But Then In The Doing

You will,
Choose to listen.
You may,
Sometimes refuse.
But then in the doing...
No one else you can accuse,
For your own abuse.

You will,
Choose to run.
With a hiding done.
But then in the doing...
It will be in your darkness,
You will seek light to overcome!
Only you can undo what has to you been done.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  3998.     

But Why?

Why?
Why?
Why?
Why?
Why...
Do people wonder why?
With all that's in their faces.
Why do people 'Why?
With attempts made to escape it.
Then try,
To deny...
What is 'there',
To be seen.

Offended to defend a disbelief without end.
But why?
Suited to be rooted,
But to boot it is refused.
But why?
Is a ridding to admit,
What exists should be removed.
With eyes to leave wide open and not to fear truth.
But why?
Why?
Why?
Why?
Why do people lie?
Just to hide,
From what is real?
Why do people hide behind lies that will be revealed.

Offended to defend a disbelief without end.
And suited to be rooted,
But a booting is refused.
Yet a ridding would admit,
What exists should be removed.
But why?
Why?
Why?
Why?
Why do people lie?
Just to hide,
From what is real...
If it is felt to feel.
And why?
So much disguised,
Goes undenied?
Could it be that many people don't realize,
They've been hypnotized and deceived?
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  3999.     

But You

Take what it is you can do,
And succeed with it.
No one has to know but you,
How deep the interest.

No one but you has to know,
How satisfied you feel inside.
And no one but you,
Will ever know what it does...
To complete what it is you do,
With a pride undenied.
But you.

With a choice only you have proven,
To be decisive.
Inspite of critique.
And opinions of others who may speak,
Of the nothing they believe that you do.

No one but you has to know,
How satisfied you feel inside.
With a pride undenied,
And a truth that is lived...
But you!
Know this to be true,
As you continue to do...
To get what it is you wish and choose,
Done!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  4000.     

But...Don'T You Think That's Stupid?

Unflattering and degrading comments to me made! ?

If I had not been raised prepared to receive them,
Or listen with intent to criticisms sent my way...
My strut would not have had such a focus with purpose.
Nor would I feel what I did m
Meant 'something' to get,
Enough attention to be mentioned.

'Why do you do what you do?
As if to have others believe you are a fool? '

Ssshhh.
What are you trying to do?
Ruin my reputation?
What makes you 'think'...
I am not doing the best I can,
To represent myself as one.

'But...
Don't you think that's stupid? '

Of course I do.
So what point are your trying to make?
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
