I'D Be Rich!

I have never felt more examined,
Microscoped and discussed...
Than anytime in my life,
Than 'now'.

From thought process,
To how I digest my food...
To my beliefs and what I pray to,
As if I exist as a novelty.

Sometimes I feel,
That I am an animated mannequin,
For many.
And in 'some' folks eyes,
I can see the surprise when I speak...
With elocution, tone and diction intact.

And no where will I go,
Will I ever forget I am black.
Or...
Should I say African-American,
To be politically correct...
About the whole concept,
Of where folks' heads are at?

I have never felt more examined,
Microscoped and discussed...
Than anytime in my life,
Than 'now'.

And don't think it hasn't occurred to me,
That IF I carried a basketball...
AND tapped danced in a shopping mall.
I'd be RICH!
Even if I didn't have a clue,
As to what I was doing.
All I would have to do is to be entertaining.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

I'D Like My Pockets To Be As Full

My days and nights,
And appetite to live my life right...
Is a quest sometimes,
That leaves me unrested.
I wish to share and seek happiness.
Not to reminisce those obstacles I've dismissed.

So many today seem dismayed.
Stuck in ruts they replay everyday.
And offering nothing but despair to express.
I understand those difficulties...
Especially the ones that come to test!

But I've discovered it was best for me,
To see my cup half filled.
I've discovered it was best for me,
Not to dramatize my ills.
Or over burden others with them,
In an overkill.

Today we all can say,
We've made mistakes and had heartbreaks.
Today we all can come to agree...
We are disappointed with 'something'
Connected to the economy!

I'd like my pockets to be as full,
As that cup I imagine filled with gold.
And I pull it.
Glad to drag it behind me!

My days and nights,
And appetite to live my life right...
Is a quest sometimes,
That leaves me unrested.
I wish to share and seek happiness.
Not to reminisce those obstacles I've dismissed.
Or bore anyone with the repetition of it!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

I'D Like To Practice Harmony

I'd like to snap you back,
To a place,
We had!

I'd like to snap you back,
To a time before delusions.

I'd like to snap us back,
When we were happy and glad.

I'd like to snap us back!
And awaken from delusions.
I'd like to practice harmony...
And get more of that!

I'd like to snap us back!
And awaken from delusions.
I'd like to practice harmony...
And get more of that!

I'd like to snap you back,
To a place,
We had!
There was no substitution,
For the love we made.

I'd like to snap us back!
And awaken from delusions.
There was no substitution,
For the love we made.

I'd like to snap you back,
To a place,
We had!

I'd like to snap you back,
To a time before delusions.

I'd like to snap you back,
To a place,
We had!

I'd like to snap you back,
To a time before delusions.

I'd like to snap us back!
And awaken from delusions.
I'd like to practice harmony...
And get more of that!

I'D Like To See That Done

I'd like to throw a stone,
Into that glass house you live.
I'd like to see you out in reality...
Being honest with yourself as you give.
I'd like to see you dropp pretensions,
And all of that political correctness mess.
I'd like to see you be yourself again...
If 'that' from you has not yet left!

I'd like to see that done,
Before you are overcomed...
By repossessions and foreclosures!
I'd like to see you.
But not with the look of shock.
Or the stunning that has knocked you out,
In a bout with reality!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
