Just Today

Just today,
I had been thinking...
'If I allow myself to think good thoughts,
Would that pessimism in me get the point?
Would it rage in a jealous fit and leave? '
Just today,
These thoughts occurred to me.

I tried it for a minute.
And that minute grew into an hour.
I walked among the people too...
As I gazed at the sky,
And observe the budding of the trees.
While I imagined the bloom on the flowers.

Just today,
I had been thinking...
'If I allowed myself to let go,
Of that I can not change...
I can fill that time with so much happiness.
With a concentration I alone can easily arrange.'

And just today,
It dawned on me...
'If I have power to decide how I feel,
Why do I choose to accept clouds to bring rain on my life?
What do I get from resisting it?
When I can stand out in it and become nourished? '
Just today,
These thoughts occurred to me.
And I am encouraged.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Just Too Brand New To Do A Stoop

Just too brand new to do a stoop.
To seek a lover.
Just too brand new to do a stoop.
To fulfill a need.

Just too brand new to do a stoop...
To be loved.
But wanting to be snuggled up,
In a cuddle meant for me.

I want somebody who can prove to me,
They could be my lover.
I want somebody who can prove,
They know what to do to me.
And...
I want somebody who can prove to me,
They could be my lover.
With a knowing that I'm not as bold...
As I may wish them to see.

I want somebody who can prove to me,
They could be my lover.
I want somebody who can prove,
They know what to do to me.

Just too brand new to do a stoop.
To seek a lover.
Just too brand new to do a stoop.
To fulfill a need.

Just too brand new to do a stoop.
To be seeking a lover.
Just too brand new to do a stoop.
To fulfill a need.

Just Too Grand

</>I suppose if I wanted,
I could be a prude and standoffish.
With a résumé to prove,
In my life I've accomplished...
What few can and could do.
If...
I chose to put my nose up in the air.
And carried on with that kind of flair.

My mother's father,
Had been a leader of his own band.
Appearing here and there and across the land.
And for some reason then,
I couldn't 'stand' him.
He was just too grand!
And those feelings were mutual.
I just was not impressed.

Today?
I can understand why he was that way.
And I hope he has forgiven me for saying,
Whenever he telephoned to speak to my mom...
'Ma, some guy is on the phone claiming to be your father.
You know...
He of the George Frank Roberts Band.'

~That's 'your' grandfather.~

And I'm Sammy Davis, Junior.

Dedicated to my grandfather:
In Loving Memory
George Frank Roberts,
Englewood, New Jersey

'Love you, grand-daddy.
Even though we had 'many' differences,
of opinion.'
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Just Wake Me Up!

Wake me up!
You've got to pinch me.
My dreams can't be this sweet.

Just wake me up!
I see,
Unity.
And people once divided,
Collecting in the streets.
They're talking together about realities

I've got to be sleeping.
There's too many people,
Beginning to be dupe free.

Just wake me up!
I see,
Unity...
Surrounding me.

Just wake me up!
I see,
Unity...
Surrounding me.
There's too many people,
Beginning to be dupe free.

Wake me up!
You've got to pinch me.
My dreams can't be this sweet.
There's too many people,
Beginning to be dupe free.

Just wake me up!
Slap me on the back.
I'm being attacked!
My eyes can't be seeing that.

Just wake me up!
Slap me on the back.
I'm being attacked!
My eyes can't be seeing that.

Wake me up!
You've got to pinch me.
My dreams can't be this sweet.
There's too many people,
Beginning to be dupe free.

Just wake me up!
Slap me on the back.
I'm being attacked!
My eyes can't be seeing that.
Just wake me up!

Just wake me up!
I see,
Unity.
And people once divided,
Collecting in the streets.
They're talking together about realities.
Wake me up!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
