In The Process Of Doing It

I am listening to you.
And in the process of doing it,
You've changed your mind three times...
To contradict yourself.
And within minutes you have denied,
The last comment you made.
To then say I have misunderstood,
Your intentions.

However...
With your intentions left uncomprehended,
Your friends who whisper have mentioned...
Me playing the part of the culprit.
Although...
In time they too, and within your view,
Will come to refuse and excuse...
The manipulating you choose to do too well.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

In The Saying Of That 'No'

Sometimes people have to be told 'no.
No debate.
Just a 'no'.

And that is difficult,
To do that 'no'.
To let it go and be done.

Have you tried to say 'no'
To someone you love.
With the ripping out of your own heart,
In your hand.
Gripped around its beating...
And dripping blood.

No matter how you dramaticize that,
To someone...
Saying 'no' with no 'uh-huh' attached,
Can be devastating if handle incorrectly.

One who gets into a fix like this...
Should quietly remove themselves to another room,
To weep.
As quietly as possible.
Try not to give away any weak spots.
Knowing that in the saying of that 'no'...
Will get piercing dagger eye contact,
Throughout the upcoming week.
With or without sighted weaknesses.
Some dare to be told 'no'.

Some so close,
Someone will be determine,
To have another feel regret!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

In The Seeking Of A Balanced Budget

Hunger and homelessness.
And meeting the needs,
Of those jobless.
A quality of life,
That is disappearing from sight.
And those seeking futures...
With a schooling of lessons to complete,
That light for them seems to be dimming...
Quicker overnight.
For them what's ahead is looking very bleak.

'Those are not priorities.
We still perceive people with these beliefs,
As having 'special interests'.
And we are doing our best,
To eliminate those 'pests'.
What 'else' can you come up with,
That can be regarded as serious?
At least 'something' that will motivate us...
In the seeking of a balanced budget.
What else can you provide to negotiate this process? '
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

In The Seeking Of One's Happiness

Do I suggest one has to witness death,
To appreciate one's life?
Not necessarily.
But the witnessing of someone close,
Going through it...
Makes the observer more aware.
And the quality of time experienced,
Shared with those we take for granted...
Is reminisced more than one expects.

And the mysteriousness,
As to how all this connects...
Becomes more not less,
Of a curiousity!
Leaving one to believe...
Life should be lived,
In the conquering over foolishness.
And every moment spent of it,
In the seeking of one's happiness.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
