A Salad to Eat

Different hues...
Some not as bright but invites,
Those who come to eat eagerly
With an assorted presentation
That might satisfy an appetite.

With tomatoes and carrots,
Sliced apples and grapes...
Romaine lettuce sprinkled with chives
Topped with olive oil and vinegar,
Is a treat to see on a plate to delight...
And surprise.

Onions and green peppers,
Can please the eye with sensation.
When someone announces...
'I prefer a salad to eat! '
And they do without a moment's hesitation!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Assimilation

Assimilation,
Can devastate to make hate.
Assimilation,
Has no one listening in debate...
And...
Assimilation,
Only works from 9 to 5...
When some choose to stay indifferent,
With a choosing to do to vacate,
An appreciation some fake...
For their differences.

Assimilation,
To whom does it benefit.
Assimilation,
Has yet to end conflicts.
And assimilation,
Some say they can but can't admit...
Assimilation has not prevented,
Divisions or the building...
Of kept defenses.
Assimilation is not but should be...
Inter-dependent.

Assimilation should be,
Interdependent.
Assismilation should be...
Inter-dependent.
Assimilation should be,
Interdependent.
Assismilation should be...
Inter-dependent.

Don't Rush Too Quick Through It

Don't flip through pages so quick to age.
There is a phase and a process to it.
Don't flip through pages so quick to age.
One day you'll wish you sat through it,
To experience each moment...
With a doing to reminisce,
What it was you did remembered...
Not to forget what was missed.

Don't rush too quick.
Through it.
Enjoy each stage in phases.
Don't rush too quick,
To forget,
And deny the phases of age.

Don't rush too quick.
Through it.
Enjoy each stage in phases.
Don't rush it too quick,
To forget,
And deny the phases of age.

Don't rush too quick.
Through it, children.
Enjoy each stage in phases.
Don't rush it too quick,
To forget,
And wake up to deny you've aged.

Don't rush too quick through it children.
Aging should be done to enjoy...
And not deny!

Don't rush too quick through it,
Children!
Aging should be done to enjoy.
Don't rush it too quick...
Children.
Aging should be done to enjoy.
Don't rush it too quick,
Children!
Learn to experience it.
Don't rush it too quick,
Children!
Aging should be done to enjoy.
Aging is a process you should accept.
And not one that should annoy.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Graciousness

I don't intend to dye it at all.
It has been well deserved.
I earned it.
I try to execise,
To keep my body physically fit.
So I don't give the appearance of Godzilla.
I don't have that temperment.
But I do admit to a raised eyebrow...
Especially around those who assume,
My graciousness comes without effort!

The older I get,
The more of it is expected.
And on some days I may disappoint.
Those are the days I'm not hardly trying to show grace.
Those are my rudeness days.
And I do my best to provide balance!
Some folks don't get the message...
Until all sides are allowed a scrutinized view!
It entices gossip.
And I am not beneath delivering to this need!

'I am not talking about your hair.
I thought you thought I was talking about your hair? '

I've learned as I get older...
Say anything!
It doesn't matter.
Few listen.
And those that do...
Have no clue what the conversation is about!
Tie it all in!
Ultimately they will believe it all makes sense.
It doesn't have to!
And that's what I love most about aging!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
