Staying True

She has everything she has ever wanted.
A shallow and successful emptiness.
That is on the outside,
Quite impressive.
Although distant she is on the inside.
And she cries ever time it rains.

And he...
Disgarded as a worthless nothing.
Has become known around the world.
Staying true to himself.
And full of happiness he remains.
He has kept nothing changed!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  11998.     

Staying Where You Are

If I am saying what I mean...
Why would I change it?
To clarify or rearrange it?
What efforts do you make...
To shake or break your habits,
Of staying where you are?
'Down to Earth',
Remaining!
With a stale satisfaction...
You claim provides no challenge!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  11999.     

Stays Around As A Constant Reminder

De-sensitizied?
From a life lacking of experiences lived?
And joking to de-humanize others,
Living their lives from a deck of cards dealt.
Has its consequences for one to pay one day.

There is nothing like running into a brick wall.
Believing the pain resulting from it,
Can be whispered away...
Without a suffering done.
And a call for help that goes unanswered.

A suffering from our unconscious actions,
Not only comes...
But stays around as a constant reminder,
To let what is be as it is.
Or there will be no sleeping in a peaceful rest.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  12000.     

Steadfast Beliefs

'We, the people of laws and rules to follow,
To uphold and maintain the wishes of realities...
Carved in stone and steel to never rust,
And over centuries kept in vaults free of dust.
As is the wish of our founders' dreams,
With a commitment infused in our minds...
No matter what creature comforts,
May come to contradict with hypocritical conflict.
Let it be known this day and all days yet to live that come,
Whatever may occur to change minds with the times...
We WILL remain true,
To these standards and values to never undo.'

Well stated.
Now...
What happens to those,
Who evolve with a wider and higher consciousness.
We can not keep them restricted to such outdated limits.

'Are we...
Or are we 'not' entitled to keep bestowed upon us,
An exclusive way of life to live as we see fit, fair and just? '

These ceremonies are great.
But very few of us are still living to appreciate them.

'Who cares.
Are there any other documents,
To declare such self-righteousness?
And wholesome self-indulgence.
No.
I think not.
There isn't.
And you know why? '

No.
Why?

'Because we also control delusions.
We only need to keep the belief,
Our interests are threatened by enemies.'

But what are those interests we keep with steadfast beliefs?
And...
Aren't we indebted to our enemies?

'Look...
I was appointed to read what our steadfast beliefs are.
I am not here to interpret them.
And besides...
This process is to keep people entertained.
And faithful to created delusions long ago implemented.
Why change the ingredients to an addicting soup? '

Huh?
What?

'Why change the ingredients to an addicting soup?
If people still find it delicious...
So be it.'

Oh.
Like...
Let them eat cake?

'No.
Somebody already cooked that one to death.'
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
