  797.     

On One Road

If people in places where jealousies exist,
Have no original thoughts of their own or common sense...
An attempt to dilute what is presented takes place.
With a making less effective,
Those benefits for all that could initiate...
A unified doing with a purpose that does not exclude.

Yet...
There are those who prefer,
A continued fast pace of the spreading of ignorance...
That eliminates an awakening to erase comprehension.
And ensuring minds confined are further left behind.
With a keeping of stereotypical images less difficult to find,
And easily found to adapt to definitions confusing the mission.

This is similar to establishing 'one' deity to worship,
But pleasing all who happen to see...
The 'pieces' instead of the whole.
And...
A way to worship this 'deity' differently to appease,
Those who will agree they have come to travel on one road.

On The Scene Experiencing Something New

Each breath one is blessed to breathe,
With a cycle that rewards with an inhaling...
That is exhaled to release in an exchange that repeats,
Is new.

Each dawn is new.
As are sunsets too.

Each night one sleeps,
Something is freed to cease.

Each step one takes,
Embraces another that has been replaced.

Each face that is seen,
Is as different as we are human beings...
On the scene experiencing something new,
With an excitement that is fresh!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

On The Top Of A Mountain

Diss your issues that you've got with me.
I'm not about them!
Stop and dropp 'em.

Diss your issues that you've got with me.
Hey hey,
I'm not about them!
Stop and dropp 'em.

You say you've paid,
Dues you want to send my way.
I'm not about them!
Stop and dropp 'em.

You say you gave,
Others time you gave away.
I don't doubt it.
I'm not about it.

You say pain stays...
Riding on your back each day.
I don't doubt it.
I'm not about it.

You seem so afraid,
To let go and just walk away.
Then you want to blame me,
Because I'm not frustrated?

Diss your issues that you've got with me.
Hey hey,
I'm not about them!
Stop and dropp 'em.

Diss your issues that you've got with me.
Hey hey,
I'm not about them!
Stop and dropp 'em.

You say you've paid,
Dues you want to send my way.
I'm not about them!
Stop and dropp 'em.

You've got to learn to make pebbles from a rock!
Keep'a chippin' at those boulders...
'Til you find,
You've climbed to the top...
Of a mountain!

Diss your issues that you've got with me.
Hey hey,
I'm not about them!
Stop and dropp 'em.

You say you've paid,
Dues you want to send my way.
I'm not about them!
Stop and dropp 'em.

You say you gave,
Others time you gave away.
I don't doubt it.
I'm not about it.

You've got to learn to make pebbles from a rock!
Keep'a chippin' at those boulders,
'Til you find...
You've made up your mind,
You can reach and plant your feet...
On the top of a mountain!

You can choose to look down and around...
But you can choose to move everyday,
Without delay,
From all of your nonsense!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  800.     

Once It Arrives

'My beliefs and restrictions.
Those thoughts I kept,
That brought upon me an isolation.
And my obsession with fear and death! '

Why are you doing that now?

'There is nothing about them valued.
Not a solid single thing!
Now I appreciate what freedom means.
And the clarity it brings! '

What do you think it means?

'Stepping out of a box I tried to fit in.
Observing those crushed against each other...
Trying to impress themselves.
With manifested nonsense.
And ridding myself of those thing's
That do not provide my sustained peace of mind.'

But that is not happiness.
You need things to make you happy!
I know I do.

'No!
I needed those things for pretentious reasons.
But when I discovered my peace of mind...
I knew immediately to get rid of a whole lot of 'stuff'!
And leaving that with attitudes with bitterness behind.

OH! So...
You value that more than anything?

'Yes!
Once it arrives...
There is nothing like it!
You will find yourself removing everything,
That makes it feel uncomfortable!
Everything!
That's how determined I am to keep it!
So I hope you are not here to test me?
I can become vicious when it comes to protecting it.'

But,
I can't see a thing!

'I said...
I can become 'vicious' when it comes to protecting it.
Should I show you? '
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
