More Than Just A Few Steps Away

When a life devoted to another is given...
And those sacrifices made,
Are interpreted as a dependency.
One shown a loyalty begins to believe.
A setting off of an alarm,
To alert one needing a wake up call...
Is a recommendation.
And done without hesitation!

People like this,
Who have taken others for granted...
As casual as making an excuse,
Or picking up a telephone for hours of gossip.
Need assistance quick...
To open wide selfish eyes!
With a listening done that clears closed ears.
Because someone overlooked,
Is about to take more than just a few steps away!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

More Than Just Coincidences

A tragedy happens.
And reactionaries are quick,
To respond.
The giving done with empathy,
Seems sudden as if a 'light' has been turned on.

And when times are less urgent,
To express our humanity?
A resistence to show a caring with concern,
Is more than expressed by an indifferentness...
We've been taught to satisfy,
With lessons instilled in us...
We obey and learn.

Proving homelessness and hunger,
With racist biases!
Are more than just coincidences,
Enforced to inflict.
By a selfishness persisted.
To advantage and benefit!
Until we become emotionally involved,
With assisted images.
And pictures to cause us to sob!

'I had to see it to believe this for myself!
How can I get more involved?
To end and solve so much pain that remains.'
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

More Than Just Exposure

More than just exposure.
My needs are to connect.
There is no flattery blinding me.
My mission is totally circumspect.

Prudent are my movements.
Precise are the intentions meant.
Forward is my pace.
Whatever it takes...
To replace the commonness,
Of accepted waste.

More than just exposure.
My needs are to connect.
There is no flattery blinding me.
My mission is totally circumspect.
Totally I choose to remain focused,
On what it is I must do next.
To afford that progress.
No matter the difficulty of those steps.

One affected with a purpose,
Is challenged by obstacles...
That allows little time,
Found to rest and reflect.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

More Than Just Refreshing

So blessed am I to have achieved,
A peace of mind I have received.
And not to find it a priority,
To remain feeling victimized...
By those who demonize,
With a doing of their misdeeds.

So blessed I am to have been given patience.
A patience when younger,
I would not have known to appreciate.
And mistakes I've made I've grown to appreciate too.
With a letting my faith and beliefs speak for themselves,
To now live a life seeking no one to approve what I do.

So blessed am I to have achieved,
A peace of mind I have received.
And not to find it a priority,
To remain feeling victimized...
By those who demonize,
With a doing of their misdeeds.

And to feel a freedom,
From not passing judgements on others,
Is an accomplishment...
Those with peace of mind have found.
And is more than just refreshing...
To know what one does from dawn to Sunset,
With a doing done 'not' to be wanted around.

I thank YOU Most High.
Thank YOU for all my blessings.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
