Rituals

How can one say that they have love for God,
And live a life that's filled with fear?
How can one go through the motions to pray...
For answers they ignore and don't hear!
How can one accept moments of doubt,
When they shout about having faith and beliefs?
And when they seek relief from obstacles to overcome...
They wonder why they are alone in their grief!

Many choose going through rituals to abuse,
Themselves...
With weaknesses,
They think God wants them to keep!
Like illnesses shared with others aware
Who say suffering is a reward for those meek!

And there are many who look down,
Upon others with their frowns
As they enter into 'temples' like sheep
Proud to keep their miseries in silence...
Without a peep!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Roads That Cross

There are roads that cross,
From which one picks to choose.
Hoping to make a correct decision,
To select the best...
Is very difficult to do.

And one does what is thought to be right,
With faith to pray.
And one does what is hoped,
Will not cause confusion...
The rest of one's life to pay.
Yet...
Are there any roads paved with gold,
Cleared of clouds or thunder?
Are there any free of obstacles,
With no sign of pouring rain.
And...
Is there much to gain,
If one refuses to choose?

Are there any roads paved with gold,
Cleared of clouds or roaring thunder?
Are there any free of obstacles,
With no sign of feeling pain?
And...
Is there much to gain,
If one refuses to choose?

Is there any other way,
To live...
With a doing done to do.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Roads Unclear But Taken

Sometimes the fog can be thick,
Maneuvering through days uncertain!
Stalled within tunnels
Dark and long!
Enduring with a strength...
Accompanied by tears at times.
And suddenly intuition pulls.
The many roads unclear but taken
Narrow...
Shadows are behind as light spreads!
Sighs of relief exhaled.
A clearing comes,
As steps are faster paced.
Warming a smiling face that glows.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Rob And Cop

People are fed to want,
With a doing of nothing.
'Word.'

And takers want more from those,
Breaking daily sweat.
'Word.'

Everyday voices heard are complaining.
With stretched lips and necks expecting,
Delivered wants and wishes to get.
While screaming in the streets protesting,
About lives they live they now regret.
'Word.'

And unruly are the crowds allowed to rob and cop.
'Word.'
And unruly are the crowds allowed to rob and cop.
'Word.'
And unruly are the crowds allowed,
To destroy with destruction and nonstop.
Because nobody that they knew,
When they grew up...
Gave to them love.
'Word.'

Everyday voices heard are complaining,
And looking for an easy out to rob and cop.
Everyday voices heard are complaining,
And looking for a reason just to rob and cop.

Everyday,
There are people seeking easy outs.
Everyday,
They are seeking ways to rob and cop.

Everyday voices heard are complaining,
And looking for an easy out to rob and cop.
Everyday,
There are people seeking easy outs.
Everyday,
People seek ways to rob and cop.
Everyday,
There are people seeking easy outs.
Everyday,
They are seeking ways to rob and cop.

People are fed to want,
With a doing of nothing.
'Word.'

And takers want more from those,
Breaking daily sweat.
'Word.'
And it seems everyday,
People seek ways to rob and cop.
Everyday,
There are people seeking easy outs.
Everyday.
'Word.'
Everyday.
'Word.'
Everyday it's observed and on display.
