Like a Jackhammer Does to Concrete

Believe in what you choose.
That has remained your policy.
Eventually you will accept the facts,
As they are.
With beliefs you have chosen to keep...
Broken into pieces,
Like a jackhammer does to concrete.
Believe in what you choose!
No one disputes those thoughts coming from you.
Although delusions and fantasies kept today...
Can be likened to a pair of tight shoes worn.
They may look good on one's feet.
However...
The bleeding created and can be seen,
Has to be discomforting.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Like a Joy Ride That Leaves Them Tingling

Many have awakened,
To discover their realities sold.
Standards of life...
And that 'quality' emboldened,
In the false text of their history!
Fading with the theft of their economic,
Sensibilities.
That which kept them attached...
To lives of teased luxuries and greed.

Many have awakened,
To discover their realities sold.
With bank closures...
And their bonds unglued.

And just a few short months ago...
All preferred to continue hearing lies.
Than to accept truth...
That never confronted a deceit it could not beat!

And today truth stares them in the face!
Yet,
Some still are praying it goes away!
Like a joy ride that leaves them tingling...
As they discuss it while leaving an amusement park!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Like a Magnet Glued

You can't chase me.
Chase me away.
I'm like a magnet glued.
And with you I want to stay.

You can't chase me.
Chase me away.
Whatever I have to prove...
Allow me to do that with you.

Clouds with thunder,
Whip up winds on me.
To split and break us up.
As if that is enough.

But I'm not the one easy to flee.
I just smile when the rain appears.
I want to make it clear,
I'm here for any storm!
With you I do belong!

Even when the bolt of lightning strikes...
I will not hide in fear from fright.
Or decide to a flight from sight!

Clouds with thunder,
Whip up winds on me.
To split and break us up.
As if that is enough.

But I'm not the one easy to flee.
I just smile when the rain appears.
I want to make it clear,
I'm here for any storm!
With you I do belong!

You can't chase me.
Chase me away.
Whatever I have to prove...
Allow me to do that with you.

You can't chase me.
Chase me away.
I'm like a magnet glued.
And with you I want to stay...
Whatever it takes,
To erase mistakes.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Like a Marathon

Sometimes I don't...
Sleep.
Sometimes I don't...
Rest.
Or eat like I should.
Because I stay up all night writing.
Sometimes I don't...
Drink,
Water...
Like I oughta!
I smoke too many cigarettes.
Trying to match lines,
With concepts that don't mesh.
And I get up to shower in my own protest.
Cursing myself because I am not at my best!
Sometimes I don't...
Sleep.
Sometimes I don't...
Rest.
Or eat like I should.
Because I stay up all night writing.
Like a marathon I alone fight to win!
Until I decide I have earned my approval.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
