Not To Preach But To Teach

Trendsetters, go-getters and others,
Who seem born to take chances...
With limits to shatter,
As if consequences to pay...
Does not to them matter,
As to who perceives them to be...
Whomever, whatever or an 'it' if they please.

And with a determined certainty,
A living of their lives earned...
Not to preach but to teach,
They have experienced from lessons learned.
To do with a living regardless who critiques,
What is done they do or how and why!
These people seek no approval for lives sacrificed.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Not To Restrict

A fluid mind turned on...
Wants to stay strong!
With...
An energy that motivates initiative.
And...
Keeping what is wished unlimited.

Not to restrict,
It...
To pity fixes.

A fluid mind turned on...
Wants to stay strong!
Not to restrict,
It...
To pity fixes.

A fluid mind turned on...
Wants to stay strong!
With...
An energy that motivates initiative.
And...
Keeping what is wished unlimited.

Not to restrict,
It...
To pity fixes.

Not To Take What They Do That Deep

There are people who can not pretend,
They can show to have their empathy believed...
With a giving it to others under any circumstances.
That's how deeply they have become involved,
With themselves and their immediate perceived needs.
Are you listening?

'Yes.
As if I have a choice.'

To then suspect their pretentiousness goes unnoticed.
That their pre-meditated giving does not detect a selfishness.

'Really?
I can't believe what I hear and my ears are all yours.'

And then to test,
Their fake sincerity given is not suspected...
That they wish from others something to get.
And then on top of this...
Those who do give and it is heartfelt in the doing,
Do no expect others to think of them as fools.
Even though some do.
Some don't.
And then some refuse to choose not to take what they do,
That deep.

'And you? '

Don't stray away from the topic.
This is obviously not about me.

'I see.
May I ask you a question? '

Sure.
Don't be so ridiculous.

'Now that we are 'not' obviously talking about you.
Can you be less obvious in the talking about me? '

Of course.
Let's talk about my expectations.

'And mine? '

There you go.
Always wanting it to be about you.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Not To Temporary Borrow

What is it you are here to prove?
A truth...
That I borrowed?
And,
What is it you're here to prove and to who?
A truth...
Untold?
With a telling of a version,
You hope gets sold.

The truth I know is in me and it is maintained.
And...
Not to temporary borrow,
No!
The truth I know is in me and it is maintained.
And...
Not to temporary borrow,
No!

What is it you're here to prove and to who?
A truth...
That I borrowed?
Well...
The truth I know is in me and it is maintained.
And...
Not to temporary borrow,
No!
The truth I know is in me and it is sustained.
And...
Not to temporary borrow,
No!
The truth I know is in me and remains unchanged.
And...
Not to temporary borrow,
No!
