Just the Thought of You

When days like these...
Come and go to leave me feeling drained,
And weak.
Just the thought of you,
Brightens my point of view.
Giving me a strength to endure.

Just the thought of you,
Helps me through...
When days like these,
Traps me inside to welcome despair.

You may be there and not here,
When days like these...
Seem to come along with a mission to squeeze,
Every breath I breathe.

Just the thought of you,
Unclouds my view.
When days like these...
Come to pursue those moments I am alone.
And subdued in wishes I desire to exist.
But you give me reasons to remember,
I am loved!
And I choose those thoughts of you,
To keep me lifted.
When days like these insist to visit me.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Just The Way It Is

'What makes a town,
Some would call...small? '

The minds of the people.

'Well...
If that is known,
Why do they continue to choose
To prove their ignorance? '

Maybe they are not doing that for you.
You see the others?
They are doing that with them too!

And since you are observing this,
To bring it to my attention...
Perhaps if you do not mention it again,
No one will know that you are the one out of place.
The one who criticizes their lives and the pace.
Look around...
See the blank look on their faces?
An absence of thinking,
Connecting together the process of thoughts!

Do you think what they and I have chosen to do...
Will make a difference to the very few,
Who have chosen to live peacefully...
Amongst those who have been blinded,
By a lack of identity?
When invited to a bar-be-cue,
The best thing to do...
Especially if you accept,
Is not to profess to be a vegetarian!
Or begin to sermonize about the eating of cows...
And the drinking of milk.
Who do you 'think' would be considered the fool?

So maybe they are not out to prove anything...
To you or to me or to anyone else!
That's just the way it is here!
Just like some places have Palm Trees.
And here you will find Maple and Pine!

Now...
If you chose to move away from all of this.
My guess is that no one here would mind...
Or notice.
That's just the way it is,
Here!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Just Think Of So Many Other Things

If you have awakened to discover,
Something you now realize has not been true.
Wouldn't that be for you to address?
And not for someone else to undo?

Isn't that 'your' discovery?
Aren't you the one that has been duped?
What do you expect to be revealed?
You believe everything that is told to you?

If you have awakened to discover,
Something you now realize has not been true.
Just think of so many other things,
You have yet come to question but accepted.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Just To Argue A Point Of View

No matter what is said,
To anyone with a thick head...
They will be determined to object,
To that which is obvious and correct...
Just to argue a point a view,
In clear displayed ignorance to convince...
With a getting of attention wanted and pursued,
To prove...
Whoever argues with them 'is' the fool.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
