That's Too Old School

Exposing one's imperfections,
To openly confess to address...
Upsets those idealistic.
With wishes to keep,
Their moralistic values of life...
Unaffected by a truth that abuses.
But confessions admitted,
Has never diminished the strength of this.
Only those committed to dismiss reality,
Are the ones who stay suppressed...
And seek the keeping of kept delusions,
To validate their unhappiness.

'Why do some pretend they are happy?
And all the time?
With nothing to show others the reason.'

~Maybe it's kept within themselves.~

'That's nonsense.
How can anyone be that happy,
Without showing 'something' they possess? '

~Perhaps 'that' something they had,
To show others to address...
Was voluntarily repossessed,
And that has left them happy.~

'Comeon!
Honestly?
Everybody knows you've got to show 'something',
To make people happy.'

~Well...
For 'some' people,
It's not what they have to flaunt...
Or their ability to acquire bling,
That keeps them happy.~

'That's too old school for me.
I aint happy unless I'm impressing 'somebody'.
And they look at me with envy in their eyes.'

~These days?
I would interpret that as 'craze'. Not envy.~
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

That's What A Growing Does

Long before I met you,
I was introduced to myself first.
And that meeting took awhile,
Before I felt a clarity.

With a clarity noticed I wanted to know.
And to let go of that which I did not need.

Now with clarity and identity intact,
I can understand...
Why today you say I've changed.
I have learned that's what a growing does.

And I hope that growth continues to show.
With a letting go of that which my mind does not feed.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  11999.     

That's What Happens When Truth Is Spoken

Truth hurts!
That's why the presence of it,
Is scandalized, falsified, denied and fantasized.
Criticized and spat upon and treated like crap!

'You are 'still' talking about truth...
Right?
I just want this conversation to maintain its focus.'

Of course I am 'still' talking about truth.
And that's the tragedy of it!
Even when it is mentioned people want to stop it.
They want to disrupt it with a show of disrespect.
To prove they can throw it indignities.
And to leave it as if that is accepted.

Well...
I say NO to that!
It is NOT accepted!

'You are 'still' talking about truth...
Right?
I just want this conversation to maintain its focus.'

You aren't paying me any attention are you?
That's what happens when truth is spoken!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

That's What I Said

No!
I have been misquoted.
And frankly...
I am getting sick and tired of it.

I did not say you lacked intelligence.
What I said was...
'How can an imbecile masquerade as a fool.
And have the I.Q. of a grapefruit! '
That's what I said 'verbatim'.

I did not mention anything,
About you lacking intelligence.
Nor that you were waiting for an order,
You placed to be filled online.
But,
It has been delayed.
Another misquote attributed to me.

If I thought you had any intelligence at all,
I'd be the first to tell you that.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
