  4797.     

Direct And Selective

I had been reprimanded,
When I spoke of my love.
When I exposed my love.
When I stripped bare with it!
And offered to take them to heights,
Of ecstasy.

I wanted to express...
A closeness only I wanted,
Them to feel from me.
Wishing this to never end.
I thought I had discovered...
Something cherished and valued within.

And today...
When I am cordial with my greetings.
Firm with a handshake and no hug at all...
I hear the whispers saying,
'Why does he 'think' he is so much better,
Than the rest of us?
Who does he believe he is? '

And overhearing this...
I from them feel,
Even more distanced.
I never sought to find 'who' it is I AM.
THAT I am 'always' willing to share.
But I've learned to become more...
Direct and selective!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Direct Correcting

I hate to offend one's ignorance.
I know too well,
The damage this can cause.

I too have been a victim,
Of my own stubbornness.
With beliefs I once,
Knew it all.

I hate to offend one's ignorance.
I know too well,
The damage this can cause.

To obtain experience,
And gain a knowledge that transcends...
Where an 'awareness' accepted,
Once had been.
Rarely opens all minds at the same time.

I too have been a victim,
Of my own stubbornness.
With beliefs I once,
Knew it all.
With a defense mechanism,
That stalled like a wall...
The coming in of a comprehension.

I hate to offend one's ignorance.
I know too well,
The damage this can cause.

But every now and then,
I can not just sit and pretend...
I am accepting of anyone's delivery to receive,
From them...
A blinding disrespect without my direct correcting.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Directed By Divine Intervention

We are here representing the elements.
The Sun, Moon and Stars.
Molded from the Earth.
In animation condensed.
Thriving within a Mind.
In the Heavens confined.
And directed by Divine intervention.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Directed Evil Is Expected To Be Feared

What is baffling about this whole process,
Is the time spent listening to those complain...
That the ones they have chosen to despise,
And selected to be their opponents...
Are not playing fair.
And have taken their positions as victims...
To levels that benefit them to an advantage.
They actually seem to mock those who pride their hatred.

Clarify the justice in this?
Where is it?
An expressing of directed evil is expected to be feared.

Why can't those who have been selected to be despised,
Just go away and coil in despair?
But no!
They seem to be relishing in the idea of it.
And have chosen instead,
To traumatize the very ones...
Who are doing their best,
To perfect their hatred against them.

Clarify the justice in this?
Where is it?
An expressing of directed evil is expected to be feared.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
