Inside the Fighting Minds of Fools

Out done by circumstances.
Out done by missteps taken...
Behind doors left cracked.
They can not control a thought
They did not create
Or can be used as theirs.
And that eats them up.
Wondering who is leaking their tricks,
From inside.
And tapping phones has been found to be a flop!
Even flip flopping like a fish
Can not save them from this
The mess they dismiss as legit!

Out done by circumstances.
Out done by missteps taken!
Out done by their own set of rules.
And keeping standards...
As fresh as the day stolen!
Once ignorance was fought,
To keep fools from inciting wars.
Now it is ignorance that keep wars in sight...
And inside the fighting minds of fools!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Inside 'The House'

If you are one,
To profess a faith...
Said is deep in God.
But a fear kept and limited,
Daily sits with you...
And warmly visits.

Put yourself on the hypocrite list!

And keep this in mind...
When you discover a scripture,
Delivered quickly from your lips.
Especially one easily remembered.
To find and repeat all the time!
One short and sweet.
And often rhymes.

Anyone with claims,
To have a faith in a 'Spirit'
With awesome power,
To lift their lives from burdens.
And able to gift them with blessings!
Who and what does one like this,
Try to convince?
When 'that' which is The Almighty...
Is constantly aware and listening,
For evidence of it.

Perhaps they view God,
Like many are prone to do.
From a pew on Sunday.
With a routine to follow through!

And name dropping to impress.
Yet being totally disconnected.
But hoping what is expressed...
Gains them an expectation of acceptance.

With quotes, notes and a nod from other folks.
Who like them...
Believe God is listening more intently!
Since they are inside 'the house',
Historically rumored and reported...
God lives in!

And He does not come out!
Or know a thing about them.
Or their pretensions to be...
More than the hypocrites they've been.
And He has known this from the beginning.
Since this they have insisted,
To choose and show to Him.

And even in their confessions,
This Deity remains unimpressed!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Inside 'This' Storm

Inside 'this' storm...
An unyielding brings,
A turbulence with no defense.
Intensifies a tension,
Felt and seen.
And incenses without forgiveness.

Inside 'this' storm...
Held onto much too long,
A twisting to squeeze embittered emotions.
Seduces,
Those that continue to go on and on...
With no pending ending that settles a win.
No matter who takes offense!
Or heats one to invent.

What is it no one confesses?
Inside this storm.
What is it that comes to manifest this?
Inside 'this' storm.
Who allowed the thunderclouds,
To advance with voices loud with roaring claps.
When it was so clear at dawn...
A new day had promised all confusion gone!
Not to entrap with the biting of backs.

What is it no one confesses?
Inside this storm.
What is it that comes to manifest this?
Inside 'this' storm.
And who allowed the thunderclouds,
To advance with voices loud with roaring claps.
Who infested this with disturbing preciousness?
When it was so clear at dawn...
A new day had promised all confusion gone!

Inside 'this' storm...
An unyielding brings,
A turbulence with no defense.
Intensifies a tension,
Felt and seen.
And incenses without forgiveness.

Insight

Young and so naοve.
Born to grow up,
On urban desperate streets.
No renovation done,
Can remove
What these young ones
Are led to believe.

The only future they have
Is what an ignorance
That comes to them
Leaves.

Young and so naοve.
Adding to the blight...
With no insight that excites
And attempts to lift them,
Up and away from this mire...
Higher.

Suppressors who conspire,
To further deplete them of hope!
They are not taught to keep!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
