In Denial Waist Deep

Stuck in denial waist deep.
And so many still refuse truth,
Is capable of releasing them to freedom...
With a finding themselves happily rescued.
To remove them from their dilemmas.
A condition they continue to pray for exits and excapes.

They say with their kept faith,
Those walls, fences and deadends...
Built and structured to protect them from fears endeared,
Will never be replaced.
And truth to face...
Has nothing to do with it.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

In Development

Bedecked with sequins.
And with the spark,
Of fire diamonds on fingers shown.
They own them.
Or at best...
They are leased.
To flash and please,
The onlookers teased.
And unbearably beseeched.

As they stroll across the sands,
With designer attire...
And leather bags clutched in hands.
The placements they have selected,
Are exquisite.
Centered for attention.
To achieve an acceptance and consent.

They would love to think those gawking as shallow.
They would love to think they harbor thoughts like that!
To give themselves reasons...
To perform acts found attractive.
And solict crowds to surround,
As they sunbath...
Swatting the appearance of annoying flies and ants!
And the billowing sand,
Kicking up from such activity...
Needlessly released.

In development...
Are the awkward poses they expose.
They are nouveau riche.
First time on a public beach.
And wanting folks to be aware...
Of the flaunting of their 'wares'.

In development...
And with fresh pretentions of their gains.
Aiming for quick glances...
They hope some hold and maintain.

Bedecked and bejeweled...
Bedazzled and much 'blinged'.
Wanting to stir up excitement.
From those chasing waves...
And caring less,
How inappropriate 'some' behave.

In development...
There they sit.
Looking quite foolish,
With turned up noses.
As if prepared to take snapshots...
From invisible camera clicks!

In development they are!
And delusioned by new wealth.
Observing the few who care to notice them...
Scorching themselves half to death.
As passersby wearing just swimsuits cry out,
'Your sunkissed skins...
Cry out for water,
Get in!
And take off all that crap! '

And they sit to ponder their positions.
Realizing...
Not one yacht appears in view!
They are on the wrong side of the beach.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

In Dire Need Of Clarification

Is it a confessed belief,
People perceive impresses others...
When they mention God?
Or is it...
A creation they have made,
They have hopes one day is accepted...
As the best impressions,
That will keep their perceptions...
Of being highly favored and chosen,
To represent a perfection of God's intentions.
Either way...
There is something in the communication,
In dire need of clarification.
Since deception and truth are in total disagreement.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

In Dire Need To Be Ceased

Has that moment finally arrived,
When divisive indifferences...
Can be set aside,
To see that criticisms and racist beliefs...
Has decreased mental stabilities,
With no one benefitting...
From the craze that has been unleashed.

There are more people today,
Threatened by themselves.
And purchasing guns and other weapons,
To protect against fears they've implemented.

There are more people today,
Afraid they have something...
Someone wants from them to take away.
Like the rights to kill and at will,
Whomever it is...
Whenever their wishes and desires aren't fulfilled.

Has that moment finally arrived,
When divisive indifferences...
Can be set aside,
To see that criticisms and racist beliefs...
Has decreased mental stabilities,
With no one benefitting...
From the craze that has been unleashed.
And this mentality is in dire need to be ceased.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
