Children Need Their Fathers

The mothers are now saying,
Their children need their fathers.
But weren't they they ones,
Who kept the fathers away?
And had the law hunt them down...
After having the courts chase they,
With warnings to keep their distance...
From these same children,
The mothers are saying...
Need their fathers!

And the fathers...
Who have discovered a peace of mind,
Are no longer trying to find excuses...
Why their fatherless children,
Seem to be out of their minds.
No matter who tries,
To blame their lack of discipline...
With no respect to others to show or give,
And put this on their shoulders...
To claim this is a reaction to their absence.

People who make decisions with ignorance,
Are always guaranteed to put their activities...
In the path of someone else to fault and shame!

'How many children raised by their mothers,
Compared to those raised by their fathers...
Have issues of discipline?
Or sit in prisons?
As a direct result of those who have created,
This statistic...
As if it had developed on its own!
Like hunger, homelessness and racism.'

~Excuse me?
I think you are looking for the excelerated classrooms.
You've stepped into a remedial one,
By mistake.~

'I'm sorry.
I was getting eye contact.
And immediately I thought they were paying attention.
Where are the excelerated classrooms? '

~Up those stairs, take a right...
And they will be the ones,
Where the light is shining bright.
You will not miss them.~
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

I Just Want to Say 'Hello' Then Step

You may claim not to know my name.
But I remember,
You're the same 'old' you.
And if our love had remained...
You would take away my memory too.

But I,
Am not...
Gonna play those stale games again!
I just want to say 'hello'
Then step!
I don't want to start,
Anything I'll later regret!

You claim not to be a part,
Of a past that broke your heart!

Well,
I feel the same as you do.
I am not going to bring up,
All the things we both have gone through.

But I,
Am not...
Gonna play those stale games again.
I just want to say 'hello' then step!
I don't want to start anything,
I'll later regret.

No I,
Am not...
Gonna play those games again.
I just want to say 'hello',
Then step!
I don't want to start anything upon the scene,
I'll later regret...
To undo!

Learn Life's Lessons

Some are afraid to hear a 'No'...
And,
Choose to walk away...
With their fears on display.
Backs turned away...
And tears from their eyes exposed.

But if one fears to hear a 'No'...
And 'Go',
What's the use of learning lessons?

A yes will come to those who learn their lessons.
And a 'no' one can let go...
When a life lived is in session.

A yes will come to those who learn their lessons.
And a 'no' one can let go,
When life's in session.

Some are afraid to hear a 'No'...
And,
Choose to walk away...
With their fears on display.
Backs turned away...
And tears from their eyes exposed.

But if one fears to hear a 'No'...
And 'Go',
What's the use of learning lessons?

A yes will come to those who learn their lessons.
And a 'no' one can let go...
When a life lived is in session.

A yes will come to those who learn their lessons.
And a 'no' one can let go,
When life's in session.

Don't be afraid,
Be brave...
Learn a lesson.

Don't be afraid,
Be brave...
And learn life's lessons.

A yes will come to those who learn their lessons.
And a 'no' one can let go,
When life's in session.

Don't be afraid,
Be brave...
Learn a lesson.

Don't be afraid,
Be brave...
And learn life's lessons.

More POP Is The Culture

More POP is the culture.
Given more significance to it meant.
And getting more POP is a culture,
Feasting on decadence.
And 'blinging' things that make no sense.

Getting more POP is a culture,
And given more significance.
But,
Losing ground is sanity,
Invented to dispense.

Oh yes more POP is the culture.
Fed to deadened heads.
Oh yes more POP is the culture.
And given more significance.
But,
Losing ground is sanity,
Invented to dispense.

Oh yes more POP is the culture.
Worship it or leave.
Oh yes more POP is the culture.
In heads to believe.

Oh yes more POP is the culture.
Fed to deadened heads.
Oh yes more POP is the culture.
And given more significance.
But,
Losing ground is sanity,
Invented to dispense.

More POP is the culture.
And given a significance meant.
Oh yes more POP is the culture.
And 'blinging' things that make no sense.

More more more POP is the culture.
And given a significance meant.
Oh yes more POP is the culture.
And 'blinging' things that make no sense.

More POP as a culture.
I want it as a need.
More more more POP as a culture.
I need it give it please.

Give me more POP as a culture.
I want it as a need.
More more more POP as a culture.
I need it give it please.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
