The Benefits They Get

Few people actually respect,
The benefits they get...
From free entitlements.

Long gone are those times,
When many had a collective mindset...
To do for their neighbors,
What they themselves expected...
To receive in return.
And mostly doing this,
Without the feeling to receive back...
A getting that was earned.
It was just accepted,
People respected.

Today people live with their own interpretations.
To get to recieve the feeding of more greed,
People cling to this belief as if to do it religiously.
And those not capable of getting their share,
Are first to be shown ignorance everywhere.

Long gone are those times,
When many had a collective mindset...
To do for their neighbors,
What they themselves expected...
To receive in return.

So many today are caught up in selfishness.
And only to think of others,
When the taking from them is done...
Is thought to be in one's own interest.
To then still not comprehend...
What goes around comes back to them again.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

The 'B-E-R'-Ness

After August...
A brisk September stirs.
The changing leaves in October breezes,
Bring changes in November that occurs!
And frost and Winter winds
Escort snowflakes that descend
In December
To nearly caress Spring.
and I sit and contemplate
The 'B-E-R' ness...
Of these months,
That delight with such joyful offerings!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

The Best Advice

If you did not want and wish,
For that which appears to exist...
How did it get there?
What is its purpose?
And why did you not notice it,
Before you stop denying it was there?

Now and today...
You accuse me to say I'm the one not 'real',
For not wanting to protest with you in unity...
To have what has been there for all to see,
Removed to be improved!

But...
Wasn't it you who told me what I brought to offer,
Was not a community need?
Although you allowed others to profit,
From your stupidity.
While you witnessed to praise them for doing nothing.
To comment to others that I am the one crazy?

Remember saying to me...
I wasn't 'this' or not enough of 'that'?
Well...
I interpreted that to mean,
I should mind my own business.
And with the doing of it I have found,
That was the best advice you could have given to me.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

The Best Attitude to Take

The best attitude to take when misunderstood,
Is one that protects your happiness.
Showing respect to those ignorant...
Will always have them depict that act as weak.
And to leave them alone will have you rumored,
As arrogant.
However...
To keep your peace of mind intact,
Distrust those who say your wellbeing is of their interest.
Since the only time these people are seen is at someone's repast!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
