Riding Undenied To Sit High On A Saddle

The tragedies that continue to plague,
A people delusioned with beliefs...
Approved and ignored as being okay,
To prey on those innocent...
Without consequences to eventually pay,
Has today depicted a society sick.
With people assuming they can do what they wish.

And entitled they perceive they can do what they please,
To destroy the lives of others and not have their own lives...
Threatened unexpectedly by misdeeds they leave,
Are a people inflicted with a growing mental illness.

A society continuing to allow these acts permitted,
Only jeopardizes those values pretentiously kept...
To defend falsities and deluded beliefs,
Kept impressive with hype but too many on the streets...
Weep!

While making attempts to sweep away,
Internal griefs they keep and with them stays.

The tragedies that continue to plague,
A people delusioned with beliefs...
Approved and ignored as being okay,
To prey on those innocent...
Without consequences to eventually pay,
Has today depicted a society sick.
With people assuming they can do what they wish.

But that day comes soon,
When deceivers who lie will have no place to hide.
And those who 'assume' they can used aged alibis,
Will find their disguises have left them victimized.
Truth comes riding undenied to sit high on a saddle.

'Why can't our deceptions get rid of it? '

Whomever believes truth can be deceived,
Are the ones yet to experience lives to live tormented.

'What a bunch of poppycock.
Once we throw some of our money at it,
Whatever it is perceived...
Will leave quicker than a tornado.
And we 'always' bounce back after one of those.'

You don't seem to want to understand,
With a sustained comprehension...
What it is that rides high on that saddle.
Close your eyes and try,
Removing the symbolism of it.
It will not be seen but felt to deal with.

'I'll take off my boots.
I don't want to be seen shaking in them.
Especially at the price I paid.'

Cherished are the words I 'use' to deny.

'Great lyrics.
Here...
You want some 'Bread'? '
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Right In The Place Where 'They' Live

People who did it had no idea,
That I loved every moment...
When they were smearing my name,
By the making of their false claims.

There is nothing like knowing,
The direction one makes and what it takes...
To maintain a discipline to learn,
And not attempt to escape from making mistakes.

Interests I have are not in ego cemented.
I am determine to establish,
The possible from obstacles and impossiblilities.
And do it in a place someone suggested to recommend,
I would succeed if I should leave.

There is nothing like knowing,
The direction one makes and what it takes...
To fulfill dreams and overcome heartbreaks.
But the doing it can be proven and with kept faith.
To stop doubters and shut their mouths,
With an observing who can pave a path...
And open closed gates right in the place where 'they' live.

'I didn't know...'

You needn't bother to continue.
As long as I did,
To me that is all that matters.

'But how did you...? '

Escape from your criticisms?

'Well...
Yes.'

I didn't try.
I relied upon them.

Right Now

Right now...
It does not matter that it is,
Or that it is what it is.
Maybe to you a point of view,
From another...
That is the same as the others,
Is not given the way you expected.
But that still does not change...
What remains the same.
And it is obvious your opinion that is given,
With an attached emotion that is driven...
Feeds a needing ego,
Instead of a common sense missing...
And you are in need of assistance not admitted,
That has been distanced and you could use.
Since...
Right now,
It does not matter that it is,
Or that it is what it is.
Maybe to you a point of view,
From another...
That is the same as the others,
Is not given the way you expected.
But that still does not change...
What remains the same.
And it is obvious your opinion that is given,
With an attached emotion that is driven...
Feeds a needing ego,
Instead of a common sense missing...
And you are in need of assistance not admitted,
That has been distanced and you could use...
Some sense,
Right now.

Right Now I Feel A Chill

You,
And your 'ALL ABOUT ME' attitude bores.
Your self obsession with self and 'exterior' virtues...
Have stretched beyond limits.
And...
This is no longer considered as an affliction,
Of mental illness.

Something inside of you does not connect,
And is missing.
It does not exist.
And the value of what is not there but gone...
Is obvious 'it' was never there for you to have a clue.

I use to think it was me who could not express,
At times...empathy!
However,
I have never been accused of being heartless.
And when I think of you...
That is the first thing that enters my mind!

In fact,
Right now I feel a chill.
And I have yet to open the door,
To request you now exit to leave!
Please...
No cold icy to throw,
Eye staring daggers.
And...
No need for me to be less than cordial about this.
Is it?
Or reason you wish to prolong this visit?
Is it?
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
