I've Never Been Here Before Either

I have been where you are.
And to repeatedly return...
To support your steps,
With motivated encouragement...
I don't object to doing!
It's just that...
My own steps need protecting too.
With a giving to it my complete attention.

And...
No one appears there to clear my path.
Or has offered to watch my back.
In fact...
No one has expressed concern at all,
If I might have fears or not.
Or how I feel after stumbling to crawl.
To get back on my feet to walk.

I am not rehearsing my journey.
Or have been given time to practice.
And like you...
I've never been here before either.
And with each step I take I know I am tested.
And like you...
I too have sacrificed to reach.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

I've Only Requested You Pay Half Price

Who wins and loses?
Who cheats and deceives?
Who manipulates religiously?
And still perceives,
Their values and standards should be believed?

Who is selfish with self-righteousness?
Who is stubbornly convinced,
That a hopping back and forth over a fence...
Proves there is a decisiveness,
With concrete and awakened consciousness?

Who defends when offended by the most trivial of deeds?
Who believes they are better,
When excusing themselves when someone else bleeds.
With a showing of a hollowness as an empty apology is given.

'What are you saying?
I paid five dollars for this bushel of apples.
I would have picked them myself.
But I was not dressed for the occasion.
And you have the audacity to imply,
I am not caring?
And I am here to deliver to prove I do?
Do you want them or not?
And don't forget,
I've only requested you pay half the price.'

What a friend!

'Finally you have begun to realize it.'
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

I've Paid Enough For It

You are so next to the exit.
So close to an open door,
I want to push you out.

Would that be domestic abuse?
Or would that be considered,
Defending myself...
From someone rarely here,
To accept any invitation...
To appear inside my house.

And you want to know what you did?

You do nothing!
Absolutely nothing.
But graze like a cow.
Feeding me a bunch of bull.

And that's all you do!

And all I want is to be treated like one.
Give me some!
I've paid enough for it!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

I've Run Completely Out Of Nonsense

I am not going to sit here,
And listen to a thing you have to say.

'Whew...
That's a relief.
I've run completely out of nonsense,
To exchange anyway.'

And what is that suppose to mean?

'Oh...
So NOW you want to communicate.
Make up your mind.'
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
