One Who Has Sacrificed With A Kept Pace

Something done persistently,
Eventually wears on the body and mind...
Of the one who has given time to find,
Without a resting to qualify this to be done...
Like some who give their recommendations,
Misunderstanding the drive it has taken...
To make sure things are set in place.
They would never understand,
One who has sacrificed with a kept pace.

Well...I do.
And it is not from that which I am doing today.
It is a much needed rest,
From that which has taken years in the making
To create.
Never before considered the connection between,
Aches and pains and the lack of rest.
Until my mind and body began to beg for some.
And getting as much as I can get to just rest,
To prioritize for myself is best.

And aging has made me more aware of this!
Without proper rest,
The body and mind begins to insist it be done.
And quick with a paying of attention.

Oh...
You don't need to shout so loud.
I hear you very clearly.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  10398.     

One Who Keeps Curious

No chores assigned to do,
Should one seek from them reward.
Since an experience to obtain,
Will eventually determine...
If one has successfully accomplished,
The achievement of listening to comprehend...
What it takes to follow instructions given.
Until patience to tolerate one has earned,
Eliminates excuses made to appreciate...
Needed lessons taught with more to yearn.
And not escapes to create to fake them learned.
To know it shown with it understood to understand,
One who keeps curious seldom debates...
Or wishes to bait heated tensions to make,
With another refusing to accept mediocrity.
Especially if one is being tested,
To produce the best of their efforts to endeavor.

'I know I can do better.'

~I do too.
That's why I refuse what you've done as acceptable.~

'Others have.'

~You deserve standing ovations.
Not polite applause.
And one day you will know the difference.
But for now take this broom,
To prepare for that stage.~
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  10399.     

One Who Poorly Duplicates

Your depictions are not precise.
And clearly quickly put together to impress,
'With' defections.

You could never be accepted as you expect.
Although as one who poorly duplicates and imitates,
You are one that can be rated...
In your prime and at your best.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

One With A Twisted Tongue

One with a twisted tongue,
Can do more damage...
With a leaving of a devastation done,
Than a plague of locusts.
Or the poisoning of bees seen limping away,
From lead painted signs...
In front of their foreclosed hives!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
