My Boo Hoo Franchise Enterprise

I too had suffered bouts
Of languishing insecurities.
I did not resist to pick upon the weakest link.
Someone who would smother me with sympathy...
And in it I would sink.
I would carry my tears around,
As I quickly blinked my eyes to produce more.
Believing I could and would allow them to pour.
I was a boo hoo servant.
Delivering despair.
A boo hoo pity party giver.
Celebrating my suffering...
Freely delivering it everywhere.
Until I saw my reflection upon so many faces.
It scared me to realize the ugliness I had graced.
A boo hoo doing mogul? No...
I then chose not to be!
Too many were out there selling that with flair.
And my boo hoo franchise enterprise...
Was not personalized as I had thought it to be!
An audience was gone.
For me...
No one had cared!
A traumatic awakening occurred.
Glared at me and stared.
So many were already marketing that.
And my efforts weren't getting me anywhere.
What I was bringing...
Had already been sought and bought!
With agony I stopped it!
The competition was too much to bare!

'Okay...
Stop it! I'm embarrassed!
I get the point! '

Discovering that happiness to share...
Was what people wanted.
And 'that' I knew was rare.
I did not see that anywhere.
Now I am on a mission to spread just joy!
Hoping that becomes desirous and declared.
My boo hoo doing days are done.
However...
Marketing happiness,
Is much more work than fun!

My Romance Is Not a Part Time Job

My romance is not hard or odd.
Since I've got it to give.
It's here for you...
And it lives.

My romance is not a part time job.
Full time!
You-are-on-my-mind.

You've got to know...
My romance is not hard or odd.
You've got to know...
My romance is not a part time job.
You've got to know...
I'll sweat.
Because I can't let you go!

My romance is not a part time job.
And I'll sweat.
Because I can't let you go!

My romance is not hard or odd.
My romance is not a part time job.
My romance is coming from my heart.
And I'll sweat!
Since I can't let you go!

My romance is not hard or odd.
My romance is not a part time job.
My romance is coming from my heart.
And I'll sweat!
Since I can't let you go!

And I'll sweat!
Since I can't let you go!

Nigger, Nigger, Nigger...NIGGUHS

No one bans
Ignorance
Disrespect
Racism and affects,
Of bigotry!
Corporate greed, lies and hypocrisy.
Or crime
Blatant thief
High taxes
Technology that creates suffering.
Degreed fools
The lost of jobs diminishing lifestyles.
Conflicts
Wars
Homelessness to aid those poor.
And there's an uproar,
Over the use of the word NIGGER?
I could care less what you call me!
I've got my pride and dignity intact!
And if it wasn't for 'niggers' being used...
There would be far less greatness
Others abuse and believe
They are better than concepts conceived!
On the backs of 'niggers'
Has enabled many to breathe...
In a false superiority that strengthens
Their self righteousness!
Calling me a 'nigger' doesn't eliminate hatred!
It just exposes the evidence,
Of a lack of self worth!
'Nigger, nigger, nigger! '
NIGGUHS
Everywhere!
Providing psychological comfort!

Optometry

If you had not been a poet,
What other field of endeavor...
Would you have chosen to pursue?

'Without a doubt,
It would have been optometry.'

Why that particular field of study?

'It seems as though everyday,
I find myself in a debate with someone...
Over that which is clearly observed.
And,
They deny seeing the obvious.'

Maybe it is not so obvious to them.

'That's why,
Optometry would have been my chosen field of study.'

It's never too late you know.

'It is for a lot of people.
Many will never see the forest for the trees.'
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
