Staying Swift On My Feet Keeps Me Peaceful

You snooze you lose,
That's it.
I'm no longer in the business,
In keeping you updated...
As to what occurs,
In front of your doorstep.
I've had to break away from that habit,
That addicted you...
To select which objections,
You preferred to accept.
When you allowed them to happen.
And I annoyed you as you slept!

Oh no...
Some things in my life,
I just had to let go!
You snooze you lose,
That's it.
I'm no longer in the business,
In keeping you updated...
As to what occurs,
In front of your doorstep.

And too tired have I become,
From excusing myself through it...
When from you I would leave.
Only to return.
To find you still unaware and fast asleep.
And getting disrespect,
Coming at me from both ends...
I could no longer justify.
You can close your eyes and keep them closed,
For all I care.
Today I don't have those concerns.

You snooze you lose,
That's it.
I'm no longer in the business,
In keeping you updated...
As to what occurs,
In front of your doorstep.
I have learned,
Staying swift on my feet keeps me peaceful.

Staying True

She has everything she has ever wanted.
A shallow and successful emptiness.
That is on the outside,
Quite impressive.
Although distant she is on the inside.
And she cries ever time it rains.

And he...
Disgarded as a worthless nothing.
Has become known around the world.
Staying true to himself.
And full of happiness he remains.
He has kept nothing changed!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  11599.     

Staying Where You Are

If I am saying what I mean...
Why would I change it?
To clarify or rearrange it?
What efforts do you make...
To shake or break your habits,
Of staying where you are?
'Down to Earth',
Remaining!
With a stale satisfaction...
You claim provides no challenge!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Staying Within The Box

Whatever is lived within one's box,
To define what keeps one's mind...
Tightly locked.
Is okay!
Until the children demand,
To go outside to play.
Finding that staying within the box,
Causes them to rebel...
Against all who live within it!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
