My Work Ethic

I make what I do look easy.
So naturally,
Those who believe they know me...
Think there is no effort applied.
And insist I could get a real job,
If I tried.
And they have real jobs they despise.

And I can say,
My work ethic is real.
I am devoted to what I do.
And with me that is the appeal.
I may not have money they can respect.
Or finances to purchase what I wish for next.
But there is one thing I know no one with me can bet...
I wont be seen shopping at the mall seeking a happiness.

And I can say,
My work ethic is real.
I am devoted to what I do.
And with me that is the appeal.
So naturally,
Those who believe they know me...
Think there is no effort applied.
And insist I could get a real job,
If I tried.
And they have real jobs they despise.

And nothing that I do with this passion I have,
Can I describe or categorize!
And everyday what I do to do it until it gets done...
I feel grateful to be blessed,
With a happiness I can regard as fun!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

On The Other Side Of The Door

If it takes one key,
To open one door...
With opportunities awaiting,
On the other side of it.
WHY would anyone choose to sit,
Ignoring what has been given...
Because they have decided,
If what is on the other side...
Would be something,
They would choose to like.
And...this is BEFORE,
Any approach was made...
By them towards the door.

If it takes one key,
To open one door...
With opportunities awaiting,
On the other side of it.
And one does not take advantage of this,
But wishes to be given clues and hints?
That key...
That opens that one door,
With opportunities awaiting?
Has been given to someone...
Looking for their ship to sail in.
Even if that ship was on the other side of the door.

'Captain?
We are still awaiting for the arrival of your chosen passenger.
Perhaps there has been a misunderstanding? '

~Do not worry about it.
We will cater to the ones who did use their keys.
We are not here to convince.
Just service.~
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Overheard Talking

Observing can eliminate frustration.
And knowing that listening to comprehend,
Is important to do with a sharing of feedback.
Clarity and understanding is associated with that.
Although...
Many are not that observant.
Or willing to listen effectively.
And that which is expressed,
Is left as if one is talking to him or herself.
But there is 'always' an exception.

One overheard talking,
And asking to have direct questions answered....
Is rarely offended by the doing of it.
Especially if this kind of conversation satisfies.

'I am sitting right here.
You don't have to talk to yourself.'

~Trust me,
I do.
I've tried and made several attempts,
To communicate with you.
And you have taught me how to recognize immediately,
Who it is, why it is and when...
My confusion begins to be created.
And it is the knowing from where it comes,
That has helped me tremendously in this relationship.~

'How long have you been doing it?
I 'thought' I overheard you answering questions.'

~Which ones did you ask? ~
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Poopey PooPoo

My grandmother,
Was not into calling her children
By nicknames.
In fact she once said to my sister...
'I gave my children the names they have!
Each was given with a special meaning.
To identify and dignify that which has been given.'
I often wondered...
Had my sister and I been,
The only ones listening?
With comprehension?
Over the years...
It just appears that way!

Today...
Grown folks are known better by their nicknames.
Than those names given.
Poopey PooPoo. BeBop. Slice and Dice...
BooBoo and Drooper!
What 'energies' have they called upon themselves?

And their children have no idea who their parents are.
Their real names.
Or their purposes.

I remembered when I began calling myself Lawrence...
My birth name.
Lawrence, Junior in fact.
Named after my father.
We were both called Larry at one time.
I decided I would become Lawrence S.
After discovering on my father's birth certificate,
His name was listed as Lawrence A.
And I wanted to be 'AS' much as Lawrence as possible!

Can you guess...
I am between poeticness.
As I share a bit of 'personal-ness'.

Folks got upset!
Guess who smiled?
Clara Louise Countryman Pertillar.
She was very strong and dynamic.
She was pleased to know I was daring!

And the leaves upon the trees,
Begin to bloom in Spring.
As I reminisce those things I miss.
Taking trips back through time.
Those things impressed upon my mind.
And finding me feeling blessed!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
