  7225.     

Lieing to Yourself Has Been Your Enemy

Open your windows.
Why suffocate,
Without fresh air to deeply breathe.

Why lock yourself away,
Within your walls?
And you sit in silence.
As if afraid someone will call.

What is the purpose,
Of your self inflicted distance?

'I've heard there is a truth outside I can not face.'

You can not keep yourself away,
From the embracing of it.
Blocked, locked away or with attempts to stop...
Truth does not victimize.
Lieing to yourself,
Has been your enemy.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Lieing Would Not Be to Your Benefit

No one has the right to lie.

'My wholesome innocent consciousness.
Beaming with the hopefulness...
Of acquiring impressive things.

Daydream and blossoming,
On the furtile fields of my expansive imagination.
Had at one time thought those thoughts.
Until it dawn on me.
Like a Sunrise awakening upon the horizon.
And...
To a degree,
I agree with your assessment...
Of a life lived to be teased by temptations sold.
Primarily to keep you reaching for the Moon and Stars.
And taxed!
For your entire life.

No one has the 'right' to lie!
However...
There are some exceptions.'

'What' exceptions?

'Those that own...
Not rent.
Or mortgage on credited loans.
Can do what they please.
If the land you live on,
Can be taken from beneath your feet...
You can not afford to lie.
You have not purchased.
Or own outright the deed.
Therefore,
Lieing would not be to your benefit.
Your lies told...
Would be created for purposes of escape.

IF you OWN.
And control who eats,
Where they sleep.
What they wear and drive!
You can 'lie' anytime you want to.
WHO's going to object?
You?
Do you realize how many decisions are made,
Everyday...
Regarding your life.
And those doing it,
Could care less if you exist.
AND they can say you don't!
And...
We both know that would be a lie!

Those that can get and maintain your attention.
And have you believe,
Eating mud pies is nutritional.
And will keep you filled with vitality,
For one hundred years.
To regain the look of a thirty year old,
Forever!
Can do whatever they want.
They already do.
You have a TV and have gone to movies!

And PLEASE...
Do not mention religion to me.
We'd be here for hours.
As you try to convince me,
Of the tremendous powers within the 'good' book! '

There are!

'Whose good book?
Who's interpretation?
And upon who's land,
Are those powers most effective? '
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Life

Life...
Is my meaning.
And life...
Is the nectar sweet.
Life...
Is what's inside of me.

To live as given.

Life...
Is no mocking bird.
And life...
Can be just a word.
But life...
Is what's inside of me!

Not here to prophecize it.
Or criticize or try.
Nor do I push aside...
The reason why,
Some live denying.

Life...
Is my meaning.
And life...
Is the nectar sweet.
Life...
Is what's inside of me.

And I'm gonna live my life...
As no mocking bird.
And life...
Can be just a word.
But life...
Is what's inside of me!

And I believe my life...
Is my precious gem.
Life...
Is what's inside of me,
Within every minute.
And life...
Is what it's gonna be.
To live as it's given!
And life...
Is what it's gonna be.
To live as it's given!
And my life...
Is what God gave to me!

Not here to prophecize it.
Or criticize or try.
Nor do I push aside...
The reason why,
Some live denying.

My life...
Is what it means to me!

Life And Those Who Live It

What you tell others you do for me,
And how you regard my presence in your life...
Are just mere words you use to entertain their attention.
What you say to others is not what I've witnessed.

I've witnessed you using my abilities to call them your own.
I've witnessed you lieing to defend your inappropriate activities,
Because you lack backbone to stand on your own two feet.
And I've been victimized by you several times,
And this I have condoned but to you it has gone unknown.

The only fool you have taken me for and believe I am,
Is the fool who acknowledges...
The you I should have left alone,
A long time ago!

The only thing you can accuse me of doing,
Is being overly patient...
With someone who has manage to take,
Life and those who live it...
Totally for granted!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
