Lessons Taught That Will Never Be Forgotten

I wish I had advice to give,
To anyone that might ask for it.
And that I myself,
In my past had accepted,
To express with a gratefulness.
But I can not say that.

In fact...
If I had not fallen,
Countless of times...
To align my head,
With the same brick walls...
To stumble time and again,
Until something snapped me away...
From my own depreciation!
I would not come to realize,
How determination, sacrifice and discipline...
Working together as ingredients,
Did not guarantee to me success.
But that process...
Certainly delivered to me patience.

And...
With patience I have learned AND earned,
Rewards of all kinds...
I can not describe,
I have received completely by surprise.
With lessons taught that will never be forgotten.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Lessons Taught to Learn

What is taught,
Is believed.
From birth
When received.

And when convinced,
With an affliction
That limits and restricts,
Of course
What is taught,
Will be perceived
As the existence.

To defend without question.
And not resist.
Many lessons taught to learn,
And meant to stay and stick.
To be remembered.
Never to forget.

Like adding to substract,
Our likes from dislikes to divide.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Lessons To Always Remember

If I lived my life,
Expecting to be showered...
With awards, attention to get and praise,
My adventurous spirit would be less complicated.
And I would do those things others expected,
Without having those wonderful experiences...
With faith and chances to take.
Or obstacles to face to reminisce them conquered.
If...
I lived my life,
Expecting to be showered...
With awards, attention to get and praise,
My life would not be mine to live.
My life would then become,
An expectation of what others have done.
And what others accomplish to do to pursue,
Is not my reason for the breath I've been blessed...
To breathe, explore with a gratefulness I can not ignore.

I live my life to open doors!
And not to follow behind,
Those with pre-conceived expectations.
There for them and easy to find.
If one door happens to stay closed...
Why should I allow my knuckles to bleed?
To then plead to qualify for entry?
There are still too many doors left,
I have yet to knock on...
With kept dignity and pride kept not to leave,
Behind on anyone's doorstep.
And this I keep kept,
As 'my' lessons to always remember!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Lessons To Be Learned

At one time,
I wanted so much to please.
And do it in a way,
To have those I wanted to smile.
Knowing, I did...
This is what I wanted.
And nothing else,
Did I have a need to flaunt.

But an aging done,
Has a way in the doing...
That helps one review,
Those steps one places.
And those times just being there,
For someone else...
Has fewer of their footsteps made,
Traced to express the same concerns.

No one ever says,
Lessons to be learned...
Come easy to absorb.
But those who teach them...
When they are finally learned,
The quality of the air seems fresher to breathe.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
