Freedom

Freedom,
Should be accepted as a given.
Freedom,
Shouldn't be a thing done to bid.
Freedom,
Should be lived without sorrow.
Freedom,
Shouldn't be split into bits.

Freedom,
Should be accepted as a given.
Freedom,
Shouldn't be a thing done to bid.
Freedom,
Should be lived without sorrow.
Freedom,
Shouldn't be split into bits.

Freedom,
Shouldn't be a thing that's debated.
Freedom,
Should be more appreciated.
Freedom,
Shouldn't have some eliminated...
From it being done everyday.
But,
Some think of freedom as a ticket.
And,
Some think they give it as a gift.
Yet,
Freedom is a given to living...
To anyone livng given life to live!

Freedom,
Shouldn't be hidden from the living.
Freedom,
Should be accepted as a given.
Freedom,
Shouldn't be taxed to the max.
Or...
Thought to take from those attacked.

Freedom,
Shouldn't be a thing that's debated.
Freedom,
Should be more appreciated.
Freedom,
Shouldn't have some eliminated...
From it being done everyday.

Freedom,
Should be accepted as a given.
Freedom,
Shouldn't be a thing done to bid.
Freedom,
Should be lived without sorrow.
Freedom,
Shouldn't be split into bits.

'Happy Holidays'

I've drifted amidst,
Broken promises once wished.
From parents and friends.
Even past lovers gone...
With exaggerated dreams,
That linger on!

And I often think,
I am the one to blame.
For displeasures showing a selfishness...
I displayed without gain.

Sitting alone,
At home
And reminiscing prepared Christmas lists.
Today I miss them dearly.
Realizing now...
Those promises weren't broken at all.
They did come my way.

Those wishes given,
As God's gifts.
Some I enjoyed!
While others I simply craved.
Leaving me with that everlasting flavor tasted...
I wished had never gone away!

Within my mind I can still hear them say...
We are always with you near!
Cheer up...
'Happy Holidays'

Changes Can Be Painful

Changes can be painful.
To go through to be needed.
Changes come to hurt,
When the doing isn't done.

People think they can run,
From changes needing made.
And...
People think they can stop,
The doing of it done.
With a crying on a shoulder.

Changes can be painful.
To go through to be needed.
Changes come to hurt,
When the doing isn't done.

People think they can run,
From changes needing made.
But everyone given life,
Has to face change everyday.

'Remember what we use to do,
When we were children? '

~Vaguely.
I do the best I can,
Trying to remind myself...
What day it is.~

It's Easy To Walk In Someone Else's Shoes

It's easy to walk in someone else's shoes.
And to feel what it takes to place their footsteps...
With mistakes made.
To never look back with a moving forward unafraid.

Just ask anyone who has done that!
There are so many...
Standing on the sidelines with a giving of their opinion.

Ask anyone one of them to confront their own fears,
As others near watch...
Dissecting everything that someone else exposes,
While listening to those who oppose and show it.

It's easy to walk in someone else's shoes.
And yet...
As easy as it is,
Those heard passing their judgements...
Are not so quick to prove those shoes on them will fit.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
