Left Alone To Self Examine And Heal

When I was chased away,
From all of my hiding places...
I began to see,
My masks on so many faces.
I began to see,
Many adorning my old insecurities.
And I reflected on each step it took,
To achieve my release.
I was left alone to self examine and heal.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Left Alone With Options

Very few people I know today,
Speak with honesty on their minds.
And honestly...
Those I did know,
Who tested that theory?
With pronouncements back then?
Have been isolated or confined,
Or ignored as out of their minds!
I was declared completely crazy,
For 'suggesting' I knew what truth meant!
I am one of the lucky ones!
I chose to be thought of as insane,
Many years ago with daring!
I camouflaged I had 'brains'.
I walked about unsuspected.
No one complained when those actions were fresh!
Today being 'nutts' is a mandatory requirement.
I am so happy I am now left alone with options!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Left As The Only Impression Made

A showing of a disrespect one regrets,
Does not erase the act of it from one's knowing.
It is best not to disrespect, period.
Than to have it left as the only impression made,
One undeserving...
Remembers.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Left Behind In Many Minds Finding Fault

One has a gun.
The other is young without one.
Respect and discipline have been tossed to the wind.
And the one with the gun,
Believes this can be done by showing an authority...
The young one without none to follow or approve,
Decides to challenge with inappropriate moves.

A fist is thrown.
Names are called.
A shot is fired.
As on the ground two fall.

People are upset and comments of racism are made.
People scream and shout convinced again,
They have been betrayed by a system against them.
But yet as an absence of accountability climbs.
And taking responsibility,
Has long been left behind in many minds finding fault.

A fist is thrown.
Names are called.
A shot is fired.
As on the ground two fall.

One has a gun.
The other is young without one.
Respect and discipline have been tossed to the wind.
And the one with the gun,
Believes this can be done by showing an authority...
The young one without none to follow or approve,
Decides to challenge with inappropriate moves.

People scream and shout convinced again,
They have been betrayed by a system against them.
But yet as an absence of accountability climbs.
And taking responsibility,
Has long been left behind in many minds finding fault.
And all who witness will never admit their participation.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
