Roll Over Minutes

Say what?
I have not seen you in years.
So good it is to see you.
I feel like breaking down in tears.

But then within one hour,
You receive a call on your cell phone,
From a long lost aging relative...
Who has fallen and can't get up.
And afraid to be alone.

'I'm sorry, honey.
I have to cut this visit short.
You know how it is with family...
They know just who to call.
Those who will stop to prioritize 'them'.
Regardless of what it is...
Those loyal like me abort! '

Say what?
I have not seen you in years.
So good it is to see you.
I feel like breaking down in tears.

And I'm trying to be understanding.
With no demands on your time.
I know how deep you are in it.
But you tell your family...
I am the one in need,
Of those roll over minutes!

Roll Up Those Sleeves

The telling of lies left as told,
Has never kept anyone...
Feeling more protected nor braver or bold.
And those investing in deception,
Are the ones behind the increase of crime.
The kind younger people accept,
As seen as they connect...
To world events over the internet.

Today...
It has become rather unfortunate,
People less conscious...
Wish to project proper social graces and etiquette.
With a feeding of deception that has left them addicted.
And showing to display themselves mentally defected,
Has kept values and standards they wish to reflect...
More reason why divisions and conflicts affect,
Mindsets believing their neighbors are threats.

Although,
A taking off those suits and ties...
With attempts made to minimize those told lies,
To roll up those sleeves to leave behind fantasies...
And facing honesty and truth to pursue reality,
Would be beneficial before anyone else has to bleed...
For greed and gluttony to feed exclusively,
The ones who believe they have the right...
To eliminate life as they choose from others,
With a finding to discover their evils to inflict...
Has been on their own sisters and mothers,
Fathers and brothers...AND themselves to commit.

Truth is there not to go anywhere!
Truth is there and shouldn't cause such despair.
Yet disguising to deceive,
Will not bring about peace for anyone to live or believe.
Truth is there not to go anywhere!
Truth is there and shouldn't cause such despair.
Or have it to be done when the ending comes for everyone,
To leave tomorrow a reality no one lives to know.

'What is this? '

~Centuries ago on 'this' planet,
They once used that as a weapon.~

'And...
How was it used? '

~To destroy themselves.~

'But why? '

~Take it with you if you wish,
Back to the ship.
But don't get that curious about it.
We are here to investigate,
How these barbarians existed.
Not to celebrate their ignorance.~

'Okay.
I suppose you're right.
But Daddy? '

~Yes?
What is it? '

'Why is it that You keep,
This side of the heavens...
Repeatedly kept so dull?
Can we end this trip and go back home? '

Rolled Up Sleeves And Backbone

The only wishes with wants craved,
To appetite the taste of them on a daily basis...
With them desired to have come true,
Are the ones that begin with life changing discipline.
To add initiative, motivation and devotion to sacrifice.
Any other advice one is given that is recommended,
Is suggested not to ignore,
But never procrastinate to consider it.
Remember this...
Doubts to think about is an easy way out.

Sleepless nights trying to fight back tears,
To discover after spending many years...
That those wishes with wants to get them pursued,
Is not a cakewalk on a path without some tasks to pass.
And confronting every obstacle possible there is.

This is not easy for anyone to do.
Especially when hearing discouraging words,
Accompanied by negative comments meant to be heard...
From those who perceive a success to achieve,
Is not done with faith, rolled up sleeves and backbone.
Or with smiles disguising the gritting of teeth.
When one is attempting not to reminisce,
The healing to mend from a hidden anguish...
Successfuly masked by one who has mastered,
With a lot of practice a display of forgiving humility.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Romanced Ideals

I have already romanced ideals,
To believe my visions to be within reach.
I have already shared my conquests to experience.
With my taste to perceive others would accept,
And also challenge themselves...
To seek and reach for 'possibilities'.
I'm not one to associate comfortably with negativity.

But I have learned not to chase doubters who hesitiate.
Or those who claim and say they have faith but wait.
Yet wanting to get paid, they do, for every step they make,
Before initiating discipline and discipline is what it takes.
Or implementing any effort made to inspire a kept assistance,
From someone else taking steps with sweat...
Just to place disrespecting others at the door of success.

'You can't expect 'everyone' to feel the way you do.'

That's true.
But everyone expects equal payment,
With a doing of less to promote their own success.

'Whatever.
I know I haven't sold any tickets yet.
And I missed both tech and dress rehearsals.
But is it possible I can get my check,
Before the opening of our first performance? '

What example do you think you set for the others, hmmm?

'I am the director.
And what I do...
Should reflect my intentions.'

Exactly.

'You can't expect 'everyone' to feel the way you do.'

I have already romanced ideals,
To believe my visions to be within reach.
I have already shared my conquests to experience.
With my taste to perceive others would accept,
And also challenge themselves...
To seek and reach for 'possibilities'.
I'm not one to associate comfortably with negativity.

'You can't expect 'everyone' to feel the way you do.'

But I have learned not to chase doubters who hesitiate.
Or those who claim and say they have faith but wait.
Yet wanting to get paid, they do, for every step they make,
Before initiating discipline and discipline is what it takes.
Or implementing any effort made to inspire a kept assistance,
From someone else taking steps with sweat...
Just to place disrespecting others at the door of success.
