  10797.     

Seasonally Adorned and Erased As Etched

Substituted duties saluted,
With a booting done...
Of those original attributes,
To dilute them and a significance...
That had inspired with influence.

Diminishing a longevity.
And a weakening encouraged,
Of a strengthened history...
That could nourish and flourish,
With a sustained courage.

But if those affected accept this...
Identities are quicker to switch,
Like the fading of fashioned fads.
With a reduction meant to be,
Of any sign of integrity.

Seasonally adorned...
And erased as etched,
From a designer's pad...
For another to sketch.
With no intent to have it last.

While delighting to see,
A pack of dogs fetch a bone...
As time from them is taken,
To humor the doers practicing their traps...
To induce those who condone what's shown.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Seasoned With Intrigue

Too many years of misunderstandings,
Seasoned with intrigue...
Has caused most people to be upset.
It is not what one has,
Or perhaps will never get.
It is an unwillingness to comprehend,
Everyone living...
Produces their own set of sins.

Too many years of misunderstandings,
Bridged by solicited confusion...
And conflicts without end,
Fed in competitions.
Ultimately split in divisions...
Of who is worthy,
To fail, succeed and win!

And no one does when everyone depends,
On neighbors, relatives and those called friends.
There has been too many years of misunderstandings.
And distrust, lies and the use of alibis to hide...
Insecurities denied,
Must all come to an end!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Seated Next to Hypocrites

Must we discuss,
The lost side of negativity?
I choose not to reset bitterness,
To sit within me and make uncomfortable,
My stress absent environment.

It is not that I am unaware of negativity.
I refuse to endorse its presence or existence.
And I care less how much of it is around.
So is prostitution!
Look at the many ways,
People are paying to get screwed.

Yes.
I have heard about the devil as well.
Especially by those who can show their devilment.
In re-anactments experienced.
Again and again!
To then preach about decadence and sin!
With free flowing scriptures quoted.
On many traveled block from coast to coast,
You will see these folks confessing misdeeds
Of their unconsciousness.
With the innovation of a gifted excuse maker.

I know about that.
And I know about them!
The eyes are not only limited to what can be seen.
The heart and mind are connected by thoughts.
and I have been taught...
Not to keep my mind focused there to pay homage.

I want to free myself from those inflictions.
And to make a visit to congregate to pray against...
Sins of our own and others,
And not 'for' lives loved as creations of God,
Defeats the birthing process.
The progress I have adopted
Is injected with happiness.

I'm not about to acknowledge sins.
Or beg for forgiveness...
Once my research has been completed.
Nor stand self righteous from a pulpit.
Knowing I disguise my lust!

In God I trust!
That's it.
And I listen and watch,
Where God reveals He wants me.
And I am sure it is not to be seated,
Next to hypocrites.
God already Knows...
I'm not having none of it!

Seated Within Barriers

Where was I 'trained'?
To use my brain?
To realize it had a better use...
Than to sit enclosed
And left not to expose itself,
To receive, perceive and deliver?

Limited to conditions,
I was not.
Disciplined with responsibility...
Came from my parents,
Who initiated my awakening.
And on many levels.

I felt restricted by depictions...
Of where I should be,
By those who were 'degreed'
To regurgitate philosophies,
That did not reflect...
A life in the projects.
I quite loved and accepted.

Where was I 'trained'?
To use my brain?
From teachers who attempted,
To keep me seated within barriers.
The ones selected to keep me subservient,
And self rejecting!
Somehow those lessons of limitation,
Activated my dreams!
The moment I discovered,
I desired to rush to be with those I loved...
While others were rushing to impress,
With the best of their redundancy!
I was being instructed to open my eyes.
Listen with my ears.
And observe the steps...
Of those who feared to adventure their own destinies.

I was 'trained' to watch them.
Learn to enjoy the taste of bitterness.
Forgive but not condone ignorance...
Whether mine or some outside affliction,
Meant to keep my life deluded!

Where was I 'trained'?
To use my brain?
Learning how to fly high from my nest.
Before any sign of wings came to sprout.
I was taught to figure it out.
My mind began an inside flight.
My insights did not need wings to fly.
And as long as no one provided boundaries,
They could not show and I refused to see...
The training of my brain,
Became my property!
Since I was too stubborn to confess,
A conformity I can reflect.
But the testing of it suits me best.
I am not restricted to shallow acceptances.
An observation that is obvious...
Does not confine me to take note!
Or attract what I need to feed me,
To sustain the light that is on 'my' path!

Limited to conditions,
I was not.
Disciplined with responsibility...
Came from my parents,
Who initiated my awakening.
And on many levels.
They had 'ways' to capture my attention.
And I developed a way to obey.
I wanted my journey to soar.
Knowing that obstacles faced...
Delayed but did not erase to replace,
My own separate wishes...
To become free and dismissed from fear!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
