Don'T Go Thinking You'Re The Only One

Rumors and lies seem to fly as high as kites,
In the breezes of Spring to untighten Winter jaws thawing...
When someone believed known achieves an unexpected notoriety.
And quick are those to dismiss the accomplishment,
As if it had been collectively perceived the attention received...
Had little to do with one's persistence, devotion or ability.

And the one discredited is often accused as being negligent,
For not being accessible to be further abused...
By the ones unprepared to express their appreciation.
But arrive they do are the few to belittle the one who sacrifices,
With a belief that to disrespect a success one gets AND deserves...
Is a way to ensure some acknowlegement for their ignorance is given.

'I've heard what you've done.
Don't go thinking you're the only one.
There are others just as talented as you.
In fact...
I know of those who are better.'

~That's great.
And if they should manage to get recognized,
For doing a job well done IF and WHEN that should happen...
They will have my deepest sympathies.
Because easy it aint a thing to do to achieve,
When people seek like leeches to defeat others.
Especially themselves in some places where faces can deceive.~

'Such a negative comment to make! '

~Feel free to quote me when you fly your kite.~
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Don'T I Keep Telling You What You Want To Hear?

An accepted insanity,
And its connection to madness...
Is not as quickly detected,
In some environments in which...
People are paid to defend those crazed,
While supporting their efforts to stay that way.

And depending on who represents,
Those totally out of their minds...
They might donate professional services,
Knowing eventually...
If they decide to run for a position in politics,
Their constituents living within certain demographics...
Will elect them over others,
Who are already known to debate and question...
Their capabilities to think independently.

And this is a procedure those insane find offensive.
They want it kept believed their entitlements to receive,
Remain unaffected and left protected...
By those they see once every two years,
With smiling faces and promises...
Guaranteed to be delivered,
IF those out of their minds are not influenced to change.
Or self examine why their lives stay the same.

'Comeon you guys,
You know me.
I'm your buddy.
Don't I keep telling you what you want to hear? '
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Don'T Knock

Come to me.
You ought to know I am at home.
Here I await.
Alone for you.
Patiently waiting.
For the nearness of you to be in view.

I'm waiting.
Anticipating your touch.
And the rush I get when we together kiss.
Here I await.
Alone for you.
Patiently waiting.
For the nearness of you to be in view.

Don't knock.
I've left my heart unlocked.
Don't knock or stop to hesitate.
I am your destiny.
I'm here. I'm yours. Your fate awaits.

Come to me.
You ought to know I am at home.
Here I await.
Alone for you.
Don't knock or stop to hesitate.
I am your destiny.
I'm here. I'm yours. Your fate awaits.

Don'T Let My Confidence Offend

Please,
Don't let my confidence offend.
I did not always place my steps,
With such self assurance.
And when I first met my own arrogance,
Even I became overwhelmed...
With the flaunting of it.

My experiences and indifferences from others,
Witnessed.
Did this to me.
And when I discovered my own identity,
Well...
People were quick to abandon my honesty.
And so difficult it was for me to let them go.

Please,
Don't let my confidence offend.
I did not always place my steps,
With such self assurance.
And when I first met my own arrogance,
Even I became overwhelmed...
With the flaunting of it.

However...
Becoming use to it I've done.
You don't have to.
And this I completely understand if you don't.
But compensating where I am for you?
To show it can be done at your satisfaction?
Is not going to happen. Period. With no explanation!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
