Defying The Odds

Defying the odds.
Winning to get attention,
After being kicked to the curb...
Is an awesome feeling one deserves.

Faith and promise with hard work,
Motivates a determination.
Taking initiative proves its worth.
And one who sweats gets what's best.

Defying the odds.
Winning to get attention,
After being kicked to the curb...
Is an awesome feeling one deserves.

And those naysayers,
With their bitter bittened lips...
Appear more embarrassed,
By the spreading of their negative gossip quipped.

Faith and promise with hard work,
Motivates a determination.
Taking initiative proves its worth.
And one who sweats gets what's best.

Defying the odds.
Winning to get attention,
After being kicked to the curb...
Is an awesome feeling one deserves.

  54.     

Follow Your Heart

You can if it is wished,
Make attempts to touch this.
But through the wilderness,
And with kept faith...
I did not reach with obstacles to face,
Just to give away...
The fruits I have come to enjoy.
Or pretend that my journey,
Is completed and I am satisfied...
To sit with a doing to stay.

Oh no.
You can make attempts,
If you wish to touch this!
However...
Be prepared to be afraid and frightened,
By those with appetites and drooling...
With a wanting of nothing else,
To eat and feast if you should fail.

'Will you stop with all this drama.
Where are you?
I can hear your voice,
But the path you have laid...
Has limited my choices to make.'

Follow your heart.
That's all it takes.
And if your faith is not strong?
There is nothing more I can say.

'Keep talking! '

I aint got time for that.
And if I did...
Why should I give it to you to waste?
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  55.     

I Will Travel

I will travel.
From point A through to Z.
To journey on a path,
With no guarantee...
If the doing of it succeeds.
Or if my attempts should be defeated.
But faith I keep strong with me.
Knowing I will travel.
Knowing there will be obstacles.
And prepared for opposition.
To face and not replace with fear.
Doubts I chase away.
I've never been comforted by limits.
I will travel.
Since my mind will not permit,
A sitting to wish dreams to visit.
I am one who would rather travel.
I choose to greet and meet my destiny.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  56.     

Just a Grouch

Just a grouch.
Shouting and pouting about.
Chasing happiness,
And those who are away.
Bitter and looking for tit for tat spats.
Nothing is right...
Unless approval is made,
For this and/or that.
And don't accidently knock on the door.
You'll get a response...
'What do you want?
And what are you here for? '

Just a grouch.
Seeking to pinch anyone...
To hear an 'Ouch! '
And loving to inflict discomfort!
Whenever the need comes,
To raise an eyebrow...
Or two.
It doesn't take much,
To arouse a grouch to fuss.
About 'something' over nothing,
That has really been done!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
