Give Them Cake From The Baker

I've been told,
There is an ethical approach to poetry...
That is both etiquette and acceptable.
And yet...
Those who express this clinical direction,
Seem not to be able to define...
Poetic limitations.
If it does not expose the comforts,
Of either prose or rhyme,
Or addresses a particular interest to reflect...
Emotions scented with a retrospective.

'Give them cake from the baker!
And not just the crust from which to taste.'

~Now...
I have these 'nagging' questions.
Would that be whole wheat flour?
Or all purpose and enriched?
Is the baker qualified with a certificate?
And...
Would the crust be frosted? ~

'Well...
Wouldn't that depend on who critiques?
And who has the ability to influence,
What it is others should or should not 'eat'? '
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Glisten, Glow and Shine

It is not enough to be just 'who' we are today.
Today we must be on alert...
To insure who we believe we are,
Hasn't been overtaxed.
Or devalued at our own expense.
We must show what we treasure,
Does not suffer from a neglect,
We leave disrespected.
Glisten, glow and shine...
All the time.
Even those flaws and blemishes,
We rather keep hidden.
Are themselves also gems!
If they belong to us...
What else could they be?


Dedicated to:
My sister...
Dr. Lisa Anne Pertillar-Brevard

God Has Done This for Everyone

And day and night...
My power comes from God.
I pray each day
And I don't find that odd.
That my power comes from God.

Each and every way...
The deeds I do will be done.
I hope each one pleases the main One.
Knowing He made the Moon and the Sun!

Those who leech leave attitudes.
Using and abusing whomever they choose.
Like animals with changing moods,
Preying on bad habits.
And fooling just a few!
Who strengthened their minds...
And had them removed!

And day and night...
My power comes from God.
I pray each day
And I don't find that odd.
That my power comes from God.

Each and every way...
The deeds I do will be done.
I hope each one pleases the main One.
Knowing He made the Moon and the Sun,
And for them who find this,
The right time comes!
Knowing what's been done,
Comes from just the ONE!

And day and night...
My power comes from God.
I pray each day
And I don't find that odd.
That my power comes from God.

Each and every way...
The deeds I do will be done.
I hope each one pleases the main One.
Knowing He made the Moon and the Sun!

And God has done this for everyone!
To know what's been done,
Comes from just the ONE!

God Is My Supply

Whatever I want or believe I need,
God is my supply.
And from His inventory I am given.

Whatever I want or believe I need,
God is my supply.
But not until God is convinced and pleased,
That the doing of my deeds,
Have not been completely freed of obstacles.

I am tested daily and I know this.
And with faith I have taken risks to prove,
The experience provides me benefit.

I am tested most times until I get no rest.
To show God I will toil and sweat,
Without complaining in regret...
To express I am upset and yet,
God knows I attempt to do my best.

I am tested daily and I know this.
And with faith I have taken risks to prove,
The experience provides me benefit.

Whatever I want or believe I need,
God is my supply.
And from His inventory I am given.
BUT not always.
Since God decides if I should try a bit harder.

'But...'

~No 'buts'.
You want. I give. You do!
That's it.
No 'buts'.~
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
