  53.     

Love Life To Live As Is

For as long as life is given,
Be the receiver who is appreciative of it.
Cloudy skies do not last forever..
Nor do storms that jolt with bolts of lightning.
To forget a shock that frightens to pass.

Only those who grow through changes,
Seem to eventually adjust to them.
With an ease of forgiveness to others given,
As a mind mends to heal.
And this is revealed as time moves on.
Leaving yesterday an experience to reminisce,
Although it has gone.

For as long as life is given,
Be the receiver who is appreciative of it.
Cloudy skies do not last forever..
Nor do storms that jolt with bolts of lightning,
Strike to sting with a doing to last...
To love life to live as is to accept as a blessing.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  54.     

Never Give Up. Believe In Yourself. You Must!

'Why should I show concern to someone,
Who has not expressed that to me? '

This unheard but seen in the faces of children.
Those who are fathered.
But orphaned by those mothers-to-be.

'Why should I keep my faith filled with hope?
When that patience I never witnessed,
Being reflected to center upon me to feel and see.'

And I want to sympathize with those lonely.
I do.
I want to show those alone,
My empathy delivered as proof.
I do!

I would do this if asked to choose.
But...
Overwhelmed I am by so many in need.
No power to correct this do I have within me.

Although I whisper in the ears of those near who can hear...
Never give up.
Believe...
In yourself.
You must!

Never give up.
Believe...
In yourself.
You must!

Never give up.
Believe...
In yourself.
You must!
Never give up.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  55.     

Physically Challenged

I understand.
My methods to teach,
Are not acceptable.

But your honor...
All I asked my son to do,
Was to use the broom...
To sweep with it.

He then told me...
'If you know how to use it,
Do it!
You're not physically challenged! '
And he was right.

Both of us have learned 'something'
From this embarrassment.

And I am guilty for teaching him a lesson,
He will never forget.

Hopefully he will recover,
For the injuries received as he ran from me...
To get hit by that car.

He would have healed quicker,
If he had stayed still to get hit in the head...
By the broomstick!
Now he's laid up in the hospital.
And I'm sentenced to sit in a cell,
Wishing I did not yell...
But knocked him out instead!

With a thinking process quickly implemented.
Saving us both from such pain.
Even though remorse has been gained from this.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  56.     

Secretly Having An Affair

I've been doing this,
For years.
Without thought of receiving attention,
For years.
And for years,
There has been no expectations.
Until someone brought it to my attention,
I should keep my opinions to myself.
Since Mother Nature had become influenced!
And it became known we were secretly having an affair.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
