Don'T Be So Quick To Pick Them Up

I think I've said enough,
About the importance of letting things be...
What they are.
Without the wanting to enhance them,
Or advance delusions placed upon your shoulders.

There is a reason applied to everything done.
We prefer not to become too closely associated,
With the outlook some say comes.
But in the letting of things be what they are...
As they come to be what they are,
Would save you the weight of added burdens to carry.

Don't be so quick to pick them up.
They may not come to you at all.
What will you then do...?
Feel neglected?
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Don'T Be The One

Don't be the one,
To begin those thoughts...
Of doubts that crop up,
Begun by others wishing to have...
Your happiness to end with it stopped.
To have you believe enough is enough.

Don't be the one,
To rely on those who gossip...
About someone who cares for you,
But from them you hear...
Another point of view you use to accuse,
To find what you wanted has gone.

Don't be the one,
To share with someone loved your foolishness...
With discovering your stupidness not forgiven.
Don't be the one,
Seeking to get your world rocked better.
Only to regret tears wept,
With sleep at night you no longer get.
To find what you wanted has gone.

Don't be the one,
To find what you wanted has got up and gone...
Behind lies that had you deceived,
To find what you wanted has gone to leave.
Don't be the one to run,
After someone you had wronged.

Don't be the one,
To share with someone loved your foolishness...
With discovering your stupidness not forgiven.
To find what you wanted has gone,
And for good like they should.
Don't be the one to run,
After someone you had wronged.

Don'T Beg Me To Keep On It

Don't beg me to keep on it.
Don't you beg me to keep on it,
No, don't beg me to keep on it.
Please don't beg me to keep on it!

Don't you follow me or try to spy.
To see if I keep on it.
Or...
Try to catch me in a lie.
To see if I keep on it.

Don't beg me to keep on it.
Don't you beg me to keep on it,
No, don't beg me to keep on it.
Please don't beg me to keep on it!

Don't you follow me or try to spy.
To see if I keep on it.
Or...
Try to catch me in a lie.
To see if I keep on it,
Until I get back in bed.
To finish what I said I would do.

In those days we were those newlyweds,
You begged me to keep on it.
In those days we were unseparable...
You begged me to keep on it.
Yes you begged me to keep on it.
But today we are not new at this at all.
And to roleplay is your dream.
To see,
If I remember.
But...
Don't beg me to keep on it.
Don't you beg me to keep on it,
No, don't beg me to keep on it.
Please don't beg me to keep on it!
No!
Don't beg me to keep on it.
Don't you beg me to keep on it,
No, don't beg me to keep on it.
Please don't beg me to keep on it!
No!

Why do I feel...
You want more from me than I can leave?

No!
Don't beg me to keep on it.
Don't you beg me to keep on it.

Why do I feel...
You want more from me than I can leave?

Don't you beg me to keep on it,
No, don't beg me to keep on it.
Please don't beg me to keep on it!
No!
Don't beg me to keep on it.
Don't you beg me to keep on it.

Don'T Count On Me Being Diplomatic

Do you know how long it took me,
To discover with a keeping of my peace of mind?
With a few trying to take if from me,
By leaving obstacles on my path intentionally?

You have NO idea what it took me to realize,
Those who disguised with ambush, intrigue...
And deceit to have me believe,
The peace I enjoy now was not what I needed.

But like you...
They too had NO idea what I would do to keep it.

'Why are you pointing to your front door? '

You can go out the back if you prefer?
And don't count on me being diplomatic.
Within my habitat I'm not into that.
So do you want what's behind door one or two?
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
