Desires Kept

Subjective objectivity,
Received and reflecting acceptance...
Effective.
Is never a consideration to suspect,
By those protesting benefits they don't get.
And yet,
Perceive they do...
To also be entitled.

'What about me? '
~What have you done to qualify,
A kept belief...
There is something done that others do,
You are deserving of acknowledgement too? ~

Subjective objectivity,
Seldom benefits those...
Without purpose or focus.
Although most expect,
What others get...
Should not leave them ignored,
Or neglected.

With motivation and inspiration,
Desires kept are often met and introduced...
To success that comes unexpected.
And difficult it is to teach,
From podiums and/or pulpits preached...
Those lessons often left unlearned.
When those who come to hear the 'Word',
Leave to understand one thing heard.

The preacher preaches.
The teachers teach.
Yet attention to them given,
Is not their position to demand understanding...
From those pretending,
They comprehend with a listening.

'But...
But, what about me? '

~Have you focused with subjectivity?
Or did you object,
To the message others received? ~

'What...?
There was a message? '
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Discipline And Acceptance

The only escape left to face,
From a decay that persists to exist...
Is prayer, discipline and acceptance.
Hesitating in disbelief of being deceived,
To await conquerers of despair are there...
With relief to replace tears with cheers...
As those good times from the past,
Return again to reappear...
Can be counted upon,
By the same folks who made promises...
To only disappear to not hear from again.

'Doth the Sun dips to vanish quick into darkness.
To leave the dew droppings of dawn,
Misting our eyes to blemish visions of a sweetened life...
No longer on the horizon fading away without rainbows.'

The only escape left to face,
From a decay that persists to exist...
Is prayer, discipline and acceptance.
With this done on a daily basis,
To wish delusions tempting to deceive...
Will eventually be replaced,
By the facts of life to taste as is...
Interpreted as being more positive.
As choices previously made,
Become less limited to acknowledge.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Doing That To Ourselves

Anyone convinced to believe,
It is their duty and obligation...
To display in any way a disrespect,
Shown to others with a doing to expect...
Acceptance without their behavior being corrected,
Is someone who has been taught.

And there are so many like this,
Quick to be offended to not have graduated...
Beyond an escalating of ignorance.
To only become offended,
When believed themselves to be mistreated...
By others who have witnessed,
People abusing themselves just for the amusement of it.

'They treat us as if we are less than human beings.
Just because we've been doing this to ourselves,
Doesn't mean we are requesting assistance.'

So...
When will you quit administrating your own mistreatment?

'Let me make this perfectly clear.
We are accustomed to abusing ourselves.
And the fact that we disrespect each other,
Is not an open invitation for outsiders to do it.
And that is the reason why we've come together in protest.'
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

I'll Find A Way To Handle This Myself

The best advice to give to anyone,
Is the advice that isn't given.
Especially if the attempt intended,
Has not been directly solicited or mentioned.
Avoid controversy.
And by all means...
Do not give opinions on anyone's relationships.

If there are those who insist,
Upon being fools at their own expense...
Why bother throwing away an invested interest?
Benefits are more rewarding,
To come when one does not expect them.

Keep lips shut.
Listen to nod as if to comprehend.
And prepare to do something creative,
If a situation warrants it.
With a leaving people like this to exit quick,
To allow them to obtain...
Their own experience as needed.

If you don't,
Any advice you give will be yours to regret.
And anyone you give it to,
Whether solicited or not...
Will never let you forget it.

'So...
What do you think?
Should I ask for a divorce?
Or should I continue to cheat on my spouse?
With both of my secret lovers?
What's wrong.
Why did you suddenly,
Cover your mouth with your hand? '

~Oooo...
I gotta ooofache.~

'A toothache? '

~Ummhmmm.~

'Well, don't just sit there.
Go take care of it.
I understand.
I'll find a way to handle this myself.
I'll catch up with you later.
Go.'
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
