  7197.     

Identifiable Senselessness

A fool will always insist,
There is something besides an imbecile...
Inside that resides and does exist.

It is just the proving of this...
Seems much deeper under the surface,
That even floodlights can not find the evidence...
Because of the darkness clouding,
This kind of clownish mind...
All of the time,
With an identifiable senselessness.

A fool will always insist,
There is something besides an imbecile...
Inside that resides and does exist.

One argument is,
If one cares to know...
A fool would rather not let just anyone be exposed,
To a rare an unappreciated intelligence kept within.
Stop grinning!
For the fear that polluted thoughts may attempt to corrupt,
The brilliance that is shown once secrets have been discussed.
That's 'that' argument.

Now...
The more popular argument is,
That the proof is in the pudding.
And very few have any patience left,
To stay around wishing to get a taste of it!
With the amusement of waiting for an appearance,
Dwindling quicker by the minute.
Knowing that a fool is just seeking the attention.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Identified To Recognize

This feeling is like none other.
And unexpected to accept as new.
Easier it is to let go of the past.
To know true happiness I have at last.

It has arrived and I can't deny it.
I can only testify!
Know it I do since it's here inside.
Inside of me it has arrived,
To identify and recognize.

It's here and I know it's a perfect fit.
It's here and I live to love to welcome it.
And easier it is to let go of the past,
To identify and recognize what I have at last.

It has arrived and I can't deny it.
I can only testify!
Know it I do since it's here inside.
Inside of me it has arrived,
To never let it go.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Identifying How It Is Applied

You're looking for relevance?
What a coincidence.
So am I.
But I think the retrieving of it...
Will depend on one of us,
Identifying how it is applied.
Whenever it is discovered!
And to what will it be processed?
To impress whom?
And why should we care,
If it doesn't become recognized.
Since whose relevance will it then belong,
Once you and I declare it so and agree?
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  7200.     

Idle

Suicidal.
Idle.
And self-obsorbed.
Vain.
And obsessed.
Living for no other interests.
No interest but self,
Kept addressed.

Temperatures rise.
And from the skies,
Ledges are reach.
Pushed to the edge are those,
Finding a lack of peace.
Never in their minds,
Found to know it or to keep.

Leaving Bible thumpers stumped.
Feeling like 'pinballs',
Being bumped and in mental slumps.
Even scriptures learned to quote and explain,
Will not remain in minds closed.
No matter what 'The Word' to others expose.

'It's better to be up in Heaven,
Than to live this life of Hell.'
Say those who have made their own Hell to live.
A Hell they have created to make.
A now seek a better way.

And they believe if they should leap,
With and ending of their lives.
God will come to realize,
Their self-centered acts are 'not' suicidal.
Or idle.
Vain.
But...
Sacrificial.
Sacrifices made to show independence.
An independence that will impress God.
And relieve this DEITY to please.

Leaving God to perform more important duties.
Than the taking away burdens too heavy to bear,
Away from those believing themselves chosen...
To live their lives,
Without God in them to depend.

Suicidal.
Idle.
And self-obsorbed.
Vain.
And obsessed.
Living for no other interests.
No interest but self,
Kept addressed.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
