No One Can Separate Us Ever

You know I love You...
And would never place anything else,
Above You!
YOU are My Father,
I am Your son.
Without question...
Those doubts have gone from me.

Eternity with You is my destiny!
I view Your creations with eyes opened,
And cleared of delusions that once sat
Upon my troubled mind!
I know Your power...
And it would be senseless to believe,
I am not part of it!
All the time with me You visit!

When I sit masquerading with things to impress...
I know I have distanced You from me,
And that leads to my duress...
As I make attempts to surpress,
With depression on a heavy chest!
That once kept me stressed,
To defeat my very best...
Attracting woes and unhappiness!

YOU are My Father,
I am Your son.
Without question...
And without hesitation,
I know I can come to You, My Father
To demand obstacles on my path be removed!
I want to prove my faith with every step I take.

I am here on this Earth to do Your will!
I've emptied myself of evil deeds of others...
And druthers they have,
They would love to see me fulfill!
I'm not having that tax me...
Like the strife of daily living,
Or witnessing others who live unforgiving.

YOU are My Father,
I am Your son.
Without question...
And without doubt,
I know You are there...
To help remove all sorrows or 'bouts'
Of struggles I fight that might incite my despair!
I am too aware You are there,
And everywhere I cast shadows!

YOU are My Father,
I am Your son.
Without question...
And no one can separate us,
Ever!

You know I love You...
And would never place anything else,
Above You!
YOU are My Father,
I am Your son.
Without question...
Those doubts have gone from me.

Offensive

That you would find truth offensive,
Is as disgusting as the marketing of decadence.
Although truth 'is' free,
And the acceptance of it opens eyes widely...
I can see but can not condone,
Why truth is reduced to an atmosphere of fear.
With many preferring it left alone.
Since promoting truth,
Is not a money maker.
And one is discouraged from it not to pursue.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

One Man's Foot Stool Is Another Man's Ladder

Have you ever stopped to take stock,
By inventoring those who remain as adversaries?
Those who took their time to find 'something' wrong you did?
And over the years and in retrospect,
There is a comfort you've obtain they still can not respect.

And yet,
Their neglected lives are in shambles!
And something inside you stops short...
Of doubling over in uncontrollable laughter?
And you know even expressing a broad smile,
Or a giggle is inappropriate.

Suppose the shoe was on the other foot?
Even though it isn't...
Just imagine that it was!

And then...
All of a sudden,
You hear the voice of your mother saying,
'God does not like ugly.
And...
One man's foot stool is another man's ladder! '

Huh?
What?
Ma...?
Nevermind!

And the tears begin to fill your eyes,
Trying to hold inside of yourself...
The pain held from not letting go,
Of a roaring laugh that is felt!
But you know...
Mama knows best!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Pain To Feel And 'Made' To Feel

Most people who did this find they have been canned,
By those they chose and picked to adorn false labels.
And discovering they aren't so quickly being forgiven.
No.
Not by those who have learned to become vicious,
In malicious and vindictive ways...
That those who once chose to pick them to label,
Can not remove the imprinting of 'fool' on their foreheads.
Or prevent the rise of ignorance they have allowed to spread,
Now proving them all to be crazed.
With a doing to make it impossible to erase,
The tracking of their placed steps to therapists to correct...
Advancing stages of their mental illnesses.

'Pain to feel and 'made' to feel,
Is a process one does not easily forget.
No matter who perceives the doing of it easy,
When one appears to have healed completely...
With a disguising of any memory one has.
And it isn't satisfying at all...
To witness those who placed false labels,
Being medicated to charade in masquerade their craze.'

~I thought you would have forgotten what happened by now.~

'Why?
Because you don't feel what it is I do? '
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
