Learning Is Wise

Do you keep lessons taught,
Kept in your mind easily to find?
Are those thoughts within your reach,
To appreciate the ones...
Who came into your life with wishes to teach?
Or are you the kind who could not sit patiently?
With beliefs to succeed,
Meant dismissing to listen and doing what you pleased.
To let life be criticized as time passed you by...
With it realized learning is wise.
But for whatever the reason...
You still can not uncover anyone qualified,
Who will tolerate your statements made...
That are disconnected to any questions asked.

'I understand what it is you want to hear.
However...
Your statements are neither related to the topic.
Nor can I respond with answers...
If there are no questions but statements made.'

~Well...
What kind of teacher does that make you,
IF you can not make me learn.~

'First you have to accept the process,
To understand the steps of success.'

~So...
What are you saying?
I'm stupid? ~

'Now we are getting somewhere.
Identifying is the key to open the door,
And proceeds progressively...
To allow you to succeed successfully.'

~Am I still stupid if I did not understand any of that? ~

'Keep asking questions.
Comprehension ultimately will be yours.
Learning is wise.
Especially if one keeps it wished to be done.'

~I don't get it.~

'You will.
But now is not the time to give it to me.
Play your role of student as best as you can.
And I'll do my best to prepare you to teach.'
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Learning So Much

You've got me,
Learning so much.

You've got me,
Wanting to touch...
Each moment.

And...
Fly in the sky,
As high as I can.

Because of you,
There is a new me I see.
And believe,
I do...
Nothing is out of my reach.

Because of you!

You've got me,
Learning so much.

You've got me,
Wanting to touch...
And believe what I see,
Is within reach.
Because of you...
There is a new me,
I see!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Learning To Function On The Assumption

Learning to function on the assumption,
That all of life operates as one initiates and dictates...
Is not a healthy outlook.
And isolates that kind of mind,
In confines of endless conflict.

When everything done must come from that point of view...
Insecurities are taught to be defended.

And those who oppose this obvious illness that shows,
Are to be symbolized as enemies.
Although the threat imposed is instigated to control.
And this for them begins the unravelling towards their end!
With no empathy or mercy from nature shown.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Learning To Live My Life

Does that apparatus,
Provide you with a sense of status?
Does the way someone dress,
Immediately impresses you...
To provide that 'image'
You may choose or refuse to select?
With a hope for a beginning,
Of a thirst that does not finish...
From its first taste.
Wishing it not to ever be quenched!

To discover this for you becomes a preferred routine...
Only to get bored with the same familiar scene?
Me too!

However...
I did awaken one day refusing to do,
The expected.
And rejecting to become accepted,
On someone else's terms!
Learning to live my life,
Free to be me.
And finding it cost effective...
With no approval to be earned!
Or emotions left to pamper,
When they've been scorched...
And wounded from a burn!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
