Preview I Do

Preview I do,
Untaken steps.
To prepare and let,
My mind project...
Those things yet,
I must select.
And some I am reluctant,
To forget.
With wishes...
To have more of a happiness kept,
For me.

Preview I do,
Those hurdles and hoops...
I've jumped through.
With needs too common.
And wants too few.
Knowing that darkside,
Like others do too.
When love held escapes.
And hurt stays in its place.
Wishing again to taste it like I knew.
Hoping to go on,
In what seems an empty pursuit.
With a past reviewed continuously.
To prevent a preview I do of pain.
That may come tomorrow.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Previously Witnessed

One's abrupt change of racial biases kept,
Meant to inflict another's suffering to apply.
And with a doing done to impose disparities,
To cause sometimes premature death...
Unnecessary agonies and flowing tears wept.
Just to depict one of being able,
With a capability to insure...
Disadvantages observed and by others seen,
Ultimately appeases the one who demeans.

And with a doing done to deceive with a masking,
Of one's misdeeds a reversal of fortunes happens...
To often result in a return of one's own conflicts,
So surmountable they will never leave.
No matter if one decides to have a change of heart,
In a pleading heard to be victimized from the very start.
Yet...
Those who live a life like this on lies,
And tries to hide with a hope the past will be forgotten...
Eventually from their darkened corners,
A falling apart begins to occur to have the one emerging...
With a denying of wearing diversed disguises.
Worn and previously witnessed for all to see.

Prick

She was told it would prick,
If she put her hand on it.
And sure enough it did.
I slide her hand
Between both of mine,
And rubbed!
She noticed then,
How small the prick.
Thinking it to be bigger!
I assured her it was not!
Showing her how to hold it.
And from then on...
We both enjoyed the Rose!

Pride To Hype And Delusions To Keep

Surrounded we are,
By visitors coming from other stars.
More advanced in intelligence,
And far beyond our self-centered limitations.
Although we would like to perceive ourselves,
As the creators of the Universe...
Probing the Cosmos,
To detect other forms of life...
Progressing to create conflicts,
To depict who best can destroy themselves...
With greed, deception to feed corruption.
And chaos with uncertain purpose,
Defective of any effectiveness.

'We must protect our borders,
From the aliens.
And profile those we deem suspicious.
You know...
The ones intelligent AND ambitious.'

~What about those 'foreigners' with cash?
Buying up all the landmarks.
And valuable property that exists,
From coast to coast wherever it sits? ~

'They are different.
We welcome their investments,
And with much interest.'

~So what is it that is being protected? ~

'Pride to hype and delusions to keep.'

~Well...
In that case,
Let's just stay focused...
On fears to face, threats and terrorists.
At least the doing of it always entertains.~

'And don't forget,
There are those with their religious beliefs.
So chill that extraterrestial stuff.
There are some folks who still can not accept,
The Sun does not rise or set...
But the Earth actually orbits to rotate around it.'

~LIES!
I don't want to hear anymore of that,
DEVIL talk.~
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
