If It Is Not Of Mutual Benefit

It has been explored.
Loving what I do and sharing.
And I have been abhorred,
By those who believed...
Sleep walking through my life,
Was perfectly alright.
On 'my' time.
As if a mission of doing me a favor,
Has been a charity completed...
To leave another pleased.

I had to make it clear to many...
I am more than a surface animation.
To be serious with life is not an ambition.
It is what I live this life appreciated and given.
And if it is not liked how I handle my life...
There is no need to be involved in it with pretense.
I do what I do with an intention meant.
I am not seeking anyone to 'accomodate' my desires.
If it is not of mutual benefit,
What is the point of being around folks like that?
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  7162.     

If It 'Is' Or Isn'T?

To be OR not to be?
Is 'that' your question?

Please,
Ask me another.
I don't even know how to respond.
Not to that one.
Not anymore.

If it 'IS' or isn't?
Would be more appropriate,
Under these circumstances.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

If It Is Peace

With imagination...
Free we are to deliver,
Our best creations.
Only we restrict them to limits!
Sometimes selfishly we decide,
To explore or hide.
Within those limits.
And satisfied we are,
When they've been reached.

Snuggle some do...
In moods of fictionalized attitudes.
Set and draped upon landscapes,
Author made.
To invite escapes.
For the mind traveling to other times.
To visit while watching a movie.
And hypnotized to feel...
Live and breathe,
The experience.
Believed with feelings felt to be real.

~If it is peace we say we seek,
Why isn't this captured and released...
To be as it is wished and witnessed? ~

Rendered portraits on canvas hooked,
To walls.
Will stop and stall one in motion.
With eyeballs that seem to follow.
If the artist wishes this.
From a devotion set in motion.

~If it is peace we say we seek,
Why isn't this captured and released...
To be as it is wished and witnessed? ~

With imagination...
Free we are to deliver,
Our best creations.
Only we restrict them to limits!
Sometimes selfishly we decide,
To explore or hide.
Within those limits.
And satisfied we are,
When they've been reached.

Architects.
Dancers with bodies flexed.
Poets sometimes rhyme,
Or ramble on with prose...
Depict from the heart,
What sensations lay bared...
To pen and share right from the start.
'Please...
Leave me to drift,
Upon the smooth watered rocks.
In a cascading not to stop...
The fresh bleeding of my emotions.'

So much of us can be exposed,
To silence our indifferences.
If we chose to compose our thoughts.
To bring to life 'that' which is sought.
And,
If it is peace?
Why must it be fought?
Before it becomes realized...
In our presence and prioritized to keep.

~If it is peace we say we seek,
Why isn't this captured and released...
To be as it is wished and witnessed? ~

And yet...
Perhaps peace is too abstract to define,
To permit it a basic comfort.
For those who have nourished to feed,
On complexities!

If It Is Their Wish

'They don't get it.
So it's best to leave them with their wishes.'

If it is their wish,
Not to see how they will benefit...
From the taking advantage of someone's experiences,
Guess who is left to get more rest?
And guess who's life is detected less affected,
By their acceptance of their own foolishness?

~But what is it that they don't get? ~

'That person who is giving to them voluntarily,
Relieved from getting caught up in their mess.'
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
