More Than Gifts Of Talents

It takes...
More than gifts of talents.
It takes...
Getting up from a sitting down,
With intiative to face and embrace...
From a kick starting of motivation,
Wherever and however it is found.

And it may be affixed to a critic's lips.
Or someone who despises,
What is done and how one does it.
But it takes more than gifts of talents,
One is blessed to be bestowed with.
It takes heart that benefits,
One who has a willingness to forgive.

Although...
Not to be forgotten,
And practiced on a daily basis with a faith that's kept...
Is an asking of God while God conducts HIS business,
In a thankfulness to express and address with each step...
That God keeps HIS eyes on 'yours' as you do HIS will.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Peace Has Packed On A Fast Track and Gone

Sad attacks are stacking to leave nerves on all backs.
With increasing sickness shown unmasking this as a fact,
That...
Sad attacks are stacking to leave nerves on all backs.
With increasing sickness shown unmasking this as a fact,
That...
Peace has packed on a fast track and gone.

Where are the people,
The people wishing peace.
Has peace retreated,
To leave fearing increased.

What has happened to the people?
The loving caring people?
As these sad attacks are stacking,
To leave nerves on all backs.

Where are the people,
The people seeking peace.
Has peace retreated,
To leave fearing increased...
As,
People are now looking for trouble.
And...
People are now hunting for trouble.

What has happened to the people?
The people who loved peace?
As these sad attacks are stacking,
To leave nerves on all backs.

Gun toters now attacking,
As if a knack to snack...
On those innocent as if it's meant,
To make fearing fact.

Where are the people,
The people wishing peace.
Has peace retreated,
To leave fearing increased.

What has happened to the people?
The people who loved peace?
As these sad attacks are stacking,
To leave nerves on all backs.

Sad attacks are stacking to leave nerves on all backs.
With increasing sickness shown unmasking this as a fact,
That...
Peace has packed on a fast track and gone,
To leave a grieving.
Peace has packed on a fast track and gone.

Oh where could be the people,
The people seeking peace.
Has peace retreated,
To leave fearing increased...
As,
People are now looking for trouble.

Where are the people,
The people wishing peace.
Has peace retreated,
To leave fearing increased...
As,
People are now looking for trouble.
And...
People are now packing for trouble.

Where could be the people,
The people seeking peace.
Has peace retreated,
To leave fearing increased...
As,
People are now looking for trouble.
And...
People are now gunning for trouble.

Running Away Doesn't Free

Deciding to come out of hiding,
To run away...
From what's inside,
Kept still denied.
But then...
Why does one keep believing,
Running from something...
Frees.

Deciding to come out of hiding,
To run away...
From what's inside,
Kept still denied.
But then...
Why does one keep believing,
Running from something...
Frees.

So many do it thinking...
Running from something frees.
And keep a pace believed...
A running from something frees.
To only feel defeated,
By a running with no relief.
So many do it thinking...
Running from something frees.
And keep a pace believed...
A running from something frees.
To only feel defeated,
By a running with no relief.

Deciding to come out of hiding,
To run away...
From what's inside,
Kept still denied.
But then...
Why does one keep believing,
Running from something...
Frees.

So many do it thinking...
Running from something frees.
And keep a pace believed...
A running from something frees.
To only feel defeated,
By a running with no relief.
So many do it thinking...
Running from something frees.
And keep a pace believed...
A running from something frees.
To only feel defeated,
By a running with no relief.

It's hard to stop it but...
A running away doesn't free.
Those who have stop it know...
A running away doesn't free.
Believe or not...
Whatever isn't dropped,
Will continue to come knocking.
Oh....
A running away doesn't free.
Those who have stop it know...
A running away doesn't free.
Believe or not...
Whatever isn't dropped,
Will continue to come knocking.
Oh....
A running away doesn't free.
No. No. No...
A running away doesn't free.
There is no doubt about it...
Running away doesn't free.

Seeing Something For The First Time

I am so grateful,
That your perceptions of who I am...
Has nothing to do with me at all.
And who it is I know myself to be.
However...
Do not let my mentioning this,
Stop you at all from your beliefs.

You have done more for my popularity,
Or the lack of it...
Than anyone else I could hire,
To keep what I do to make ME interested.

I am serious.
Why are you looking at me like that?
As if you are seeing something for the first time.
Stop it!
I am not going to pay you a cent.
I just wanted you to know how I felt about it.
Will you cut that out!

If you are going to talk about me,
At least we should meet.
Don't you think?
I do.
And yes...
This is my real voice.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
