Losing A Battle With Truth

Losing a battle with truth,
Can be devastating.
With a mental and physical display,
Done to be shown in a way...
Even those deceived to be victimized,
By the ones telling lies...
Have become empathetic,
Towards the people who have spent...
Most of their adult lives,
Doing their best to ruin others.
And watch from the sidelines now they do,
Wiping tears from their eyes...
As they observe what is seen and in clear view.

'Why do you weep?
What they did to me,
It took years before I got a peaceful sleep.'

~Me?
I was able to sleep.
And eventually found peace of mind to keep.
But to witness the power of kept faith,
Continues to touch me in places...
My mind just can not erase.~

'I don't feel one thing for them at all.'

~I don't either.
Well,
Maybe I do feel an empathy I can't conceal.
And that's what kept faith does to me,
Whenever I am blessed to see truth in action.
To know the effects of it has its way to be revealed,
In ways I could not imagine.~

'In my verbal battles with them,
I imagined them defeated.'

~Maybe that's why it took you so long,
To get peaceful sleep.
I've learned faith kept to keep,
Has been my favorite weapon.~

Losing Its Own Self Importance

Losing Its Own Self Importance

Losing Light

Too many wish to see others stumble.
To crumble as if it is predicted.
Addicted and wicked this sickness is.
And those who cherish this as their existence,
Parish...
Like a falling star losing light,
The Sun refuses to follow...
Or trace its path,
As it falls to be forgotten...
Into an eternity of darkness.
Swallowed in a cosmic hold!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Losing Patience

If one is the owner,
Of another's debt.
And that other one's life,
Has been enhanced by loans and credit,
Kept.
Who is more indebted?
The one who's lifestyle has been fed,
On the achievement of good credit ratings?
Or the one quietly...
Losing patience instead?

If one is the owner of another's debt.
And one of the two brags about a greatness kept.
While the other has sat patiently...
Listening to the boasting,
Of one exposing a pumped up chest!
Which one do you think eventually...
Will extend an upper hand?
And which one will admittedly,
Will express regret and on nothing to stand.
On which can be declared is theirs to own?
Not if one is accustomed to living indebted,
On borrowed finances another loans.
Which one do you 'think' will be left to moan?
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
