'If' I Get Them

Remembering when things,
Had a control and purpose...
I once believed had everlasting meaning.
And with them my life by others was received,
With the same limited perceptions then conceived.
Has today...
With a knowing I had more to value.

But I didn't know that...
Until things from me were taken away.
To leave me with a hightened and relieved,
Perspective of a better life.
With this thought kept...
I am blessed knowing I don't need things.
But they are nice to want to have 'if' I get them.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

If I Had A Nickel For Each Of Your Thoughts

If I had a nickel for each of your thoughts,
I'd still be awaiting for some sense you make.
To share something between us that is common.
And maybe it is the inflation done,
That prolongs my impatience.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

If I Had Done Those Things

Love is not a test of will power.
Nor a fight kept to prove,
Who is right...
When being wrong is easy to admit.

In a lasting relationship...
The one who wins,
Is the one who forgives the quickest!
Or pretends that is being done.

And 'if' I had done those things,
When I was younger...
I may not be the happy single man I am today!
It works for me!
This single life I sought desperately.
I had to divorce myself,
From that philosophy!
When I was right?
I was.
Right.
I was not too cool about that 'I'll be wrong
For the sake of love business.'
Who?
Not me!
Sometimes one thing done,
Does not work for everyone!
But it is a great feeling to think that it could.
And the happiness I now enjoy giving advice...
Is a coverup for some deep misery,
I am suppose to feel.
Right?
No.
And I lie about having a peace of mind,
Without being nagged all the time...
Trying to find it!
Right?
No.
I am not trying to find anything I've got!
The only thing I miss,
Is filing joint tax returns!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

If I Had Fed On Thoughts Of Limitations

If I had fed on thoughts of limitations,
You would not know...
How to spell my name correctly.
Or be aware of my existence.
Or hear me laugh.
Cry.
Or wonder why...
I accept defeat gracefully.
To me defeat is fleeting.
If not self inflicted.

You see...
And you do not have to agree with me.
Each step forward I decide to take...
I make.
To only compete with myself in the doing.

If I had fed on thoughts of limitations,
I would not be aware I could reach beyond them.
There would be too many excuses,
To use to pick from right under my feet.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
