Running Out of Patience

They did not understand his smile
Or the quick pacing of his steps.
They did not understand
Why rumors did not affect him!
Neither gossip nor slander
Seemed to bother him at all!
And when they threw him out...
Locking the door behind him,
They were amazed to discover him...
Laughing and swinging on the swing,
In the backyard!
They could not sleep at night...
Even medicated!
Why?
They questioned!
Why is he doing 'this' to US?
And no one thought to change the locks!
And 'he' had the key!
He also owned the house and the property!
And he knew...
They were living on borrowed time!
His!
They believed they were doing him a favor,
By gracing him with 'their' presence!
And he enjoyed them not knowing...
He was running out of patience!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Running Out Of Wind

Running out of wind,
And...
Accusations.

That merry-go-round is slowing down.
And those who have become bored with it...
No longer find the scenery,
Appetizing enough...
To keep returning for revisits.

Running out of wind,
And...
Accusations.

A promise to speed up the ride is dismissed.
People just want to put an end to it.
They demand to get off.
That's it...
They quit!

Running out of wind,
And...
Accusations.

Running out of wind,
And listening with patience...
To those blowing it consistently,
Until a boredom has set in!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Running To Escape To Get Away

Running to escape to get away?
Who is it and what,
Does the chasing?

When you say you've got to get away,
What do you give up...
From the fear of facing?

And...
Did you dig yourself into a rut.
That's much too tough!
And...
Did you think it would not be that rough,
To recover.

So you run...
To keep up a pace.
And you run...
From yourself that chases.

Did you dig yourself into a rut.
That's much too tough!
And...
Did you think it would not be that rough,
To recover.
So you run...
To keep up a pace.
And you run...
From yourself that chases.
So you run...
To keep up a pace.
And you run...
From yourself that chases.

Running to escape to get away?
Who is it and what,
Does the chasing?

Running With A Faith That Is Done

With a stumbling numbed,
And...
Going through the paces.
So many people on the run,
But with a faith they choose to keep.

They are stumbling numbed,
And...
Feeling dedicated.
And...
Many feeling so elated,
With their sticking to beliefs.

They may show their wounds,
But...
People keeping faith will make it.
With their sticking to beliefs.
People know they can't fake,
A sticking to beliefs.
Even with heartache...
Or a stumbling numbed.

People keeping faith will make it.
With their sticking to beliefs.
People know they can't fake,
A sticking to beliefs.
Even with heartache...
Or a stumbling numbed.

They may show their wounds,
But...
With a stumbling numbed,
And...
Going through the paces.
So many people on the run,
But with a faith they choose to keep.

Not to be undone,
With a stumbling numbed.
Not to be undone,
With a stumbling numbed.
Not to be undone,
With a pace that keeps them running.
Running.
Running with a faith that is done.

And with a pace that keeps them running.
Running.
Running with a faith that is done.

And with a pace that keeps them running.
Running.
Running with a faith that is done.

And not to be undone,
With a stumbling numbed.

Keeping pace that keeps them running...
Running.
Running with a faith that is done.

People keep their faith when running.
Running.
Running with a faith that is done.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
