When Angels Come

I didn't believe in angels,
Until one came to appear to me.
If I had not seen before my eyes...
To believe.
And I was not asleep.
Or dreaming!

No...
I didn't believe in angels,
If one had not appeared for me to see.
And now everyday I pray,
Because I do believe...
Angels are a part of me.

In my life I am surrounded by angels.
I would not be alive to survive.
Although not always in my sight,
Angels watch me day and night.
To protect.
And correct.

In my life I am surrounded by angels.
I would not be alive to survive.
Although not always in my sight,
Angels watch me day and night.
And...
From me they don't leave.

When angels come to comfort me...
They come and from me don't leave.

When angels come to comfort me...
They come and from me don't leave.

In my life I am surrounded by angels.
Although not always in my sight...
When angels come they don't leave.
When angels come...
Believe.

When I Trust

When I trust,
I do not question with doubts of that trust.
When I start to doubt to wonder with questions,
I stop trusting even the questions to ask.
Especially if they appear clearly on my path.
With nothing left to figure out,
Or to await for answers that may try to satisfy.
When I trust,
I do it not expect to become disgusted or feel I must...
By attempts made to excuse what it is I have given.
When I trust I trust and that's it.
To close what had been there to permit if this is needed.
Trusting to give and receive is as good as it gets for me,
To know and feel.
Not to explain something different I might sniff,
Done by another attempting it to disguise or hide...
What I smell to be obvious.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

(The) Acceptance of a Nothingness

Somehow the meaninglessness...
Many describe as senseless,
Has a meaningfulness...
In a useful kind of way.

The acceptance of a nothingness...
As it is applied,
Has a purpose that drives curiosities...
To perceive a conception connected,
With a totalness lived.
Yet arguably not perfected.

And rejecting this completion given,
As 'part of' a mural of existence...
Does not validate,
A separateness.
Like a timeless void without exits.
And since there aren't any witnessed...
It sits.

Since there is an attention given it.
Even within the abstraction that attracts,
A collective misunderstanding of what it is.
Whatever it is,
That we...
You and I try scientifically to determine.
In our limited mindsets to fit it in.

And even if that meaningless nothing,
Is described as senseless...
There is a meaningfulness of it,
That is with us here to stay!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  56.     

Are You Bragging Or Complaining

It's becoming very common to find,
Those who choose to live alone.
And with it done on their own...
To make ends meet,
Peacefully!
Without passing judgements on others,
Or what they should do with their lives...
Like those who have time to criticize,
Whenever they meet another...
Surprisingly on the street.

Although people who do,
Have this kind of time to find spend none of it...
Understanding to comprehend,
Why they involve themselves in heated arguments...
With spouses, lovers and/or room-mates sharing space,
To still fault to accuse others and with blame to claim...
That those who choose to live alone,
And happy with their lives...
Are lucky and have it made to have chosen,
Not to be pressured into living a life with no peace of mind.
Or time to find it.

'You don't know what it's like to live a life I have.'

~And who would have thought my life,
Would have turned out the way it has?
I am both grateful and blessed I kept my faith.
I'm sure if I had not...
Your judgements to pass and criticisms made,
Will still have me being the main topic in your house.
But I can tell, you have a lot on your hands these days.~

'You don't know what it's like to live my life.'

~You're right.
I know.
But are you bragging or complaining,
About those choices you made? ~

'I'm doing neither.
I'm just having a simple conversation.'

~That's great.
I could if I chose to brag.
But...
What point would I make,
If you knew nothing about the obstacles I had to face,
To eliminate.and have done to do successfully.~

'Oh.
How wonderful.
I'm happy to hear you're not bragging about it.'

~What more can I say?
God has been...~

'Nothing.
Have a good day.
I have so many things to do,
Before I attend church tomorrow.'
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
