Either Way You Look At It

Will those who have selected to do good deeds...
Discover their souls resting in peace?
When they have deceased,
And moved on from the release of this dimension?

Or will they spend eternity,
In a quiet void screaming!
Finding themselves tormented in darkness...
For the afflictions they have brought upon others!

Either way you look at it,
I think it is best to appreciate...
All that God creates!
And thank The Almighty for the blessing.
While that opportunity has been given to do it!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  3998.     

Either You Have It Or You Don't

When I discovered my peace of mind,
Every doubt I had took a hike.
And everything I disliked no longer existed.
A discovering of one's peace of mind does this.
And if anyone should ever believe they can pay for it,
They are still in a long line with others...
Awaiting to impress 'someone' in the hopes to be approved,
By a valued nonsense.

To have peace of mind,
Can be compared to being stripped bare!
Yep. Butt Naked!
And loving every blemish and flaw one has.
With a doing to care less who solicits from 'whom',
A whispered and critiqued opinion.

This...is about peace of mind.
And those who chanced to have found it,
Are not seeking it to be explained...
To have it comprehended for anyone to understand,
What the having of it means to study from the taking of notes.

Either you have it...
Or you don't.
There is no in between.
Class dismissed.
Go out there and live your life.
If you have a need to ask questions...
Be specific.
And remember this...
Adapting to accept B.S. only invites more of it to regret.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Either Your Cash Or Acceptable Credit

Glamorized violence.
Decadence and disobedience.
Disrespect, disgrace and thoughtlessness,
And...
Let's see.
I saw no books for maintaining proper etiquette.
Or...
Sustaining to keep one's integrity intact!
And I want my children to prioritize these values.

'I see.
Well...
The books you have here to purchase,
Are amongst are best sellers.
We haven't had a demand for the others in years.
In fact...
They just might be out of print.'

And you expect to stay in business?

'Expect it?
We can't keep books like this on our shelves.'

The whole idea of it is appalling 'if' you should ask me.
Where is the justice?
Where is the decency?

'Anything else?
Would that be cash or credit? '

Did you hear what I just said?

'If it's not about cash or your having good credit,
You'll have to address your comments in writing...
To the manager.'

I demand to speak to the manager, immediately.
The rudeness. The insolence. The gall.

'The manager has requested,
Either your cash or acceptable credit.'

It's all about profits.
It's all about profits, isn't it?

'We do have a section on 'hypocrisies'.
That's if you have time to browse? '
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Elated To Have Been Distanced

From which side are those with kept delusions,
Would 'they' say are most difficult to view?
Those on the side witnessing their values diminished,
By the ones they've entrusted to keep them endeared?
Or the ones advocating the others to be fools,
To dismiss those standards hyped as reality...
When both sides refuse to accept reality as it appears,
With a denying of its existence?

And those censored as nonconformists,
Who continue to offend them with truth...
Are defamed on a daily basis,
For their attempts to introduce truth to them.

From which side are those with kept delusions,
Would 'they' say are most difficult to view?
When both sides refuse to accept reality as it appears,
With a denying of its existence?
And those censored as nonconformists,
Sing their praises to be the ones isolated...
To view all of this from a higher consciousness.
And elated to have been distanced.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
