Speaking One's Mind

Speaking one's mind,
Has a way of offending those who declare...
That the tone of one's voice,
And not the content...
Is disrespectful.

And if one expects to get a message across,
A sugar coating is suggested.
Since direct approaches negatively effect,
Minds deluded and are not acceptable mixes...
In fantasized environments.

'I am not accustomed to being spoken to like that.
If you jump through hoops and roll over to play dead,
Like the others...
I 'may' pay you some attention.
Until then...
I will ignore your warnings about my house burning down.
It is your attitude I object to.'

~No problem at all.
Forgive me for making an attempt,
To point out facts as they are.
And my voice...
Although to you unfamiliar,
Will be remembered.
I guarantee it.

I'll leave this bucket with you.
However...
I think the flames are out of control now,
So I'll be on my way.~
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  11598.     

Speaking Terms

I apologize if my actions yesterday,
Seemed a bit petty.
I have been stressed lately.
And took that out on you.
I'm sorry.
I hope we will still be on speaking terms.

'No problem.
None at all.
You have proven...
To have more experience,
In that area than I do.
And when I witnessed that...
I learned to leave you alone.
I have forgiven AND forgotten.
And I did that within seconds.

Sure...
We can be on speaking terms.
I can do the 'hi' and you can do the 'bye'.
And on our good days...
We can switch that around!
How's that?
You want to practice it now? '
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Special Effects

It doesn't pay to sabotage the doings of others.
Mother Nature has a way of getting one's attention.
With or without the use of unexpected special effects.
As if specifically directed,
To the one who has no choice but to accept.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  11600.     

Specific

Filled with negativity...
Generalizing in unspecific quickness!
Judged in misguided confidence...
Sitting on fences of definitions unexplored.
Convinced thoughts of dismay are shared realities!
From perched undecisiveness,
Like birds who chirp with wings clipped.
Wishing to fly but stunting motivation.
Dipped in gossiped sorrow.

Not so say those in flight to test!
A growth observed is personalized...
In quests admitted that lifts determination.
Reaching for plateaus beyond limitations set.
Specific regrets are broken to free adventures.
Hatched from confinement and climbing...
From environments of self inflictions that feed.

There is so much to touch!
So much life to live ahead...
In clear breezes that release.
For those not living,
To stop to dread tasteless steps they've taken...
Or willing to cry on shoulders to grieve.
Groaning prepared to weight with baggage,
With like minds who wear their hearts on sleeves.
There is no gift for those awaiting in mental 'trips'...
Grunting to mope in groups like these!
Hoping for joys to accidently dropp from the sky,
For them to qualify and please!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
