Nothing To Gain

I can not override your guilt maintained
By sweetening my experiences,
I alone have obtained.

Nor can I overlook my scars,
My smile might hide to camouflage.
I am not here to convince,
My emotions are contained by not wincing.
Nor make attempts to refrain from my own pain.

And I surely have nothing to gain,
By revealing my healing to you.
I am not one to wallow away in shade digressing...
Who's point of view I should have,
Or had not comprehended or accepted to pursue.
I have other things on my mind to do!
When I forgive and forget...
I move on from it,
And I am through!

If and when I do give blood...
Whether for charity,
Or from a wound that has been inflicted.
It will still drip from my own veins.
Standing, sitting or unconscious as it drips,
The 'me' I am still remains!

And I will not be seeking anyone's assessment...
Or interpretation as to how that feels.
As a sensation instigated by one fascinated.
There are too many like that...
Anticipating to be baited!
No one will know that but me.
And I am not into dramatic exaggerations.
Nor repeated self beatings,
To relive to incite my peace.
And 'that' has been well deserved!
Like a dessert I love that has been served.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Nothing To Say

There are those days,
When having nothing to say...
Is more effective,
Than listening to an open mouth...
With the same repeated nonsense,
Coming out of it.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  9439.     

Nothing To Them Dawns

It is getting increasingly obvious,
Who the foolish people are.
And the support they are receiving,
By those who follow blindly behind...
With an absence of their own thought process.

It is getting increasingly obvious,
Who has been depicted as nonconformists.
With a choosing to witness those sitting on a fence.
Debating between themselves to convince,
Which one is more logical and who makes sense.
As they try to impress who has the greater intelligence.

And the ones long depicted as nonconformists,
Now too impatient to listen to foolish arguments...
Find what others do no longer to their amusement.
With decisions they have made in times faded and gone,
To leave alone whether right or wrong...
Those remaining to debate over the obvious,
From Sunrise to Sunset and yet nothing to them dawns.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Nothing Wrong With Their 'Norm'

As far as contradictions go.
And those critical of hypocrites,
Known to contradict.
What purpose is accomplished or achieved,
If mindsets conditioned to believe...
Those outspoken with a problem with this,
Are mavericks, misfits...
And depicted nonconformists.

And those upset with idealistic visions,
Have wishes with wants to everyone adopt to adapt...
To their perceptions just to debate over deluded details,
What 'should' be accepted to digest and approve...
By those who have found with a stubbornness,
Who refuse to see Or perceive...
There is nothing wrong with their 'norm'.
And should be tolerated to be left alone as condoned.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
