If It Has Taken Years To Inflict 'This'

If it has taken years to inflict,
The awareness of fear and conflict.
It is going to take a complete letting go,
Of all those 'stable' things we've come to know...
As unshakable standards,
Demanded by those who command.
With full acknowledgement,
Of an invested ignorance...
That has not returned a dividend since,
Implemented.

However,
There has been a decadent waste worshipped.
By a taste uninhibited by displays of disrespect.
As grown to be expected as accepted.
And...
IF it has taken years to inflict 'this' awareness,
Of fear and conflict.
It is going to take a complete letting go,
Of all those 'stable' things we've come to know...
As unshakable standards,
Demanded by those who command.

Since nothing as it was or had been then...
Is recognizable enough to bluff over boundaries.
Or to fight for the occupation of turf!
To realize after many lives die...
Gone is the vanity and the struggle over worth.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

If It Has To Be Mentioned And Not Lived

If I did not have my own dreams to fulfill,
I would be envious each time...
You came to compare your life to mine,
With announcements of your happiness.
And I wonder how much happiness one can have,
If it has to be mentioned and not lived...
Without a provoking done for others to notice.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  7239.     

If It Is Carried To Be Dropped

If it is carried to be dropped,
Then the dropping of it has its purpose.
To leave it as is to move on.
However,
If it is picked up to be dropped
Again.
Without a purpose intended,
Then a carrying of it
Is a needless undertaking.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  7240.     

If It Is Given Again

Left to mend pieces of a broken heart.
As if that had been my expertise.
And today to mend as an experience done,
I seem more prepared than I ever was for love.
At least I know to keep interested when I have it,
To realize if it is again given...
It will still be mine to have to keep,
Whether or not my heart is in pieces.

'I can not understand why you stay so happy.'

I have learned to keep with me super glue.
And...
ALMOST as treasured as my monthly bus pass.

'You've got jokes, huh? '

Jokes?
What do you carry in your survival kit?
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
