From What I've Been Told

For someone who floats from ear to ear,
As often as you do and with regularity...
You should never complain about having weight issues.
Have you tried not to snack so much between whispers?

I'm not one to say this habit you have is annoying,
But the chips do make the listening to you gossip...
Less satisfying and sometimes not clearly understood.
From what I've been told.
And I hope my recommendation does not offend.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  4798.     

From Where I Came

I've lived in places,
People wouldn't dare visit...
To nod to fall to sleep.
That's why to a degree,
I could care less...
Who believes they can assess me.
Or my abilities.
And how I received them.
I know from where I came.
And how I have managed to get,
What I have obtained.
To remember it for the rest of my life.
And in the process...
People can assess me for as long as they like.
To come to go to leave me knowing who I am.
That's a given not to be taken away.
I don't do fake!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  4799.     

From Where It Comes

Mock me to stop me.
And laugh at me for as long as you wish.
But truth does not seek an acceptance to exist,
To win any battle to defeat it
And on the horizon truth rises from the Sun.
And from the Sun is where it comes to exist,
To be as 'Is'.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

From Which Perspective

Folks believing they are normal,
And the center of the universe...
Enjoy slotting people into categories.

I'm overdue to try that too!
Let's see from which perspective,
Shall I choose.
Let's see...

These are the same people,
Now bleeding economically.
They have been conditioned,
To 'assume' they are 'better than' most.
And depicting 'everyone' non-white...minorities!
I overheard someone from Liberia, Africa...
Tell how some 'Americans' visited his country.
And labelled them 'minorities'.
Yes!
And paraded around like royalty.

They are the ones who dictate image and policy.
They are the ones who feed decadence and lowlife.
They are the ones who begin conflict...
Just to get everyone to fight,
For 'their' interests.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
