Living Their Lives On A Part-Time Basis

There is nothing left one can express,
To a mindset tumbling in outer space...
About the importance of securing one's identity.
And how that connects,
To maintaining one's dignity with a keeping it in place.

Some living their lives on a part-time basis,
Would not understand a full-time commitment.
The thought of it would mean being held accountable.
With a facing of challenges without a single escape.
And without a safety net permitted to catch a heart that breaks.

How can anyone provide rescue,
To someone that argues the values...
Of surrounding themselves in total darkness.
As if to re-enact the living within a womb...
Frightened by the prospects of being shown the light.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Living To Adopt Doubt

Without you,
To have never known of your presence...
I would be now as I live,
Without.

Without you,
Doubt would I know.
With a doubting I would show,
No growth.

And I am grateful,
Not to live that way.
Doubting each day.

No.
I live to place each step I make,
Knowing...
That without you,
I could never say...
Living to adopt doubt is my ambition.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Living To Maneuver

From afar...
And distant,
Manipulated point of view...
Many unaffected by what is done,
To others on a daily basis...
Refuse to accept,
A reality lived...
That disbelievers aren't accustomed to.

To say that a people oppressed,
Have no right to protest...
The realities of their lives to live,
While upsetting those delusioned...
Who believe there are people,
Livng to make choices that are negative.

From afar...
And distant,
Manipulated point of view...
Many unaffected by what is done,
To others on a daily basis...
Refuse to accept,
A reality lived...
That disbelievers aren't accustomed to.

But they are not the ones,
Living to maneuver...
Through a truth lived that is deceived.
They are not the ones,
Living to maneuver...
Through discrepancies or disparities.
They are not the ones,
Facing obstacles everyday...
Thrown on their paths,
By those with absent identities...
Confused and abused,
By subservient teachings taught...
With an expectation,
They are better off accepting limitations.

From afar...
And distant,
Manipulated point of view...
Many unaffected by what is done,
To others on a daily basis...
Refuse to accept,
A reality lived...
That disbelievers aren't accustomed to.

But...
They are not the ones,
Living to undo with it done to confront...
Every kind of ignorance imagined,
That comes to one...
Who has been made conscious of it.
And aware of its existence with attempts,
To resist judgements passed...
Coming from all directions.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Living Under Such Duress

You had been the one to chose,
To ignore the wounds and sores...
Upon others done.

Hunger and homelessness,
Were those things not addressed.
Since you were then not affected.
In fact,
You had expressed...
A disdained for those suppressed.
And living under such duress.

That you are now stressed,
By similar distresses.
Why are your needs more of a priority?
When it has been your selfishness,
And way of life kept...
That has created today's disasterous effects!

And I,
Still affected...
By your decades of unwarranted disrespect,
Am accused of not expressing...
To you an empathy you feel I should direct?

Your delusions have created this mess!
Not mine!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
