In Need Of Immediate Amendment

What makes some people believe,
They have achieved...
Above reproach status?
Or conduct directly attributed to them,
That is blameworthy.
And in need of immediate amendment.

With an approval expected for things done they do,
They accuse others for being their enemies too.
And those they fingerpoint to accuse as their abusers,
Are repeatedly selected...
Not for their misdeeds,
But for ignoring those who dwell with a focus...
Upon their own insecurities.

What makes some people believe,
They have achieved...
Above reproach status?
Or conduct directly attributed to them,
That is blameworthy.
And in need of immediate amendment.

Could it be...
Folks are so accustomed,
With a providing to them an avenue of empathy...
Where a pity for their self indulgences is condoned.
And an exchange of bad habits,
Is quicker to accept than admitting weaknesses exists.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

In Need Of Love

Maybe I have to tell you,
My eyes are brown.
My nose is wide.
And my hair is kinky too.

Maybe I just don't show,
My feelings deep.
Or those things inside of me,
You will never know.

And no!
It is not okay you walk away.
In belief I am just an object.
There!
But too invisible to see.

And no!
It is not okay my feelings are ignored.
As if I should not have them.
And you have more.

Maybe I have to tell you,
My eyes are brown.
Skin black as viewed
With a wide nose and kinky hair too.

Although you may walk away,
Believing to dismiss me is okay.
As if I am an object invisible to see.
And not in need of love.

But I am!
And I suspect...
You have no idea what love means.
If it is not drenched in peroxide.
Or has contacts in blue.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

In Need Of Permanent Hibernation

The eminent danger that exists,
Is the one confronting a mind insisting...
Their beliefs kept are not in immediate need,
Of severe re-evaluation.

And these beliefs are not only detrimental.
They have become so engrained,
That the cost of defending against...
The use of common sense,
Has depleted everyone from recognizing...
That a connection between common sense,
And the application of truth...
Is where the true victory can be located.
And avoiding these intentionally...
Creates the onslaught of devastation.

The eminent danger that exists,
Is the one confronting a mind insisting...
Their beliefs kept are not in immediate need,
Of severe re-evaluation.
And these beliefs are in need of permanent hibernation.

In Need Of Professionals

The issue raised that has created stagnation,
In some places facing dire consequences...
Has been the importance of nuts discussed,
Observed becoming loosened from their bolts.

Committees are formed with a seeking to be funded.
And those who gather to meet,
Wish to choose someone capable to lead.
Credentials are requested to determine who succeeds.

Those seen rolling up their sleeves prepared to volunteer,
Are admonished for their activities and quickly dismissed.
They are not qualified to tighten nuts to their bolts.
And the process taken further delays the simple results.

The issue raised that has created stagnation,
In some places facing dire consequences...
Has been the importance of nuts discussed,
Observed becoming loosened from their bolts.

And even though the task of this appears easy to achieve,
Many await for a funding first...
To satisfy a proper documentation,
That idenitifies who did what with the minimal work applied.

'There was more that got done when a few decided to do it.'

~Yeah.
But were they qualified?
Did they follow correct and proper procedures?
And most importantly,
Were they approved to do what they did...
By those elected to select them leaders? ~

'No.
But a funding sought to show pride and initiative,
To screw loose nuts to ensure they remain tightened...
With a doing to brighten their own backyards,
Had been a belief to benefit and enlighten others.'

~Look...
We seek to get 'paid'.
And having 'those' lofty ideals TODAY?
Is not realistic.
We would rather apply for the funding,
Select those qualified.
And THEN...
And only 'then' can we discuss issues of pride,
Initiative, motivation and discipline.
But 'first' we are in need of 'professionals'...
To show us the way.~
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
