  11997.     

That's All I Know

Even though tomorrow,
Will not resemble today at all...
The one thing that will remain the same,
Is my willingness to do and be my best for you.
That's all I know no matter what the outside looks like.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  11998.     

That's All I'm Gonna Feed

It's not about the rhyme,
And reason.
Not about it no.
Not about the minds flipping out.
Not about it!
Not about whatever's in season.
Not about it no.
And not about the lips poked out.
Not about it!

It's not about the rhyme,
And reason.
Not about it no.
Not about the minds flipping out.
Not about it!
Not about whatever's in season.
Not about it no.
And not about the lips poked out.
Not about it!

I'm only digging you and me...
And that's all I'm gonna feed!

It's not about the people who peep.
Not about it.
Or the people who decide to eat meat.
Not about it no.
I'm only digging you and me...
And that's all I'm gonna feed!

It's not about the rhyme,
And reason.
Not about it no.
Not about the minds flipping out.
Not about it!
Not about whatever's in season.
Not about it no.
And not about the lips poked out.
Not about it!

I'm only digging you and me...
And that's all I'm gonna feed!

I'm only digging you and me...
And that's all I'm gonna feed!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  11999.     

That's All I've Got

I wish you the best.
Nothing more or less,
Than a feeling of satisfaction
Can deliver.
Offering you a sense of accomplishment,
That leaves you sighing with relief.
A pride you acknowledge yourself is success.
That's all I've got to wish for you.
Anything else that may come along attached...
Enjoy it for what it is!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  12000.     

That's Been Done

This time my time is mine.
It has been a long time since...
These days have commenced,
To be as I choose to live them.
And not emotionally committed...
To be where my devotion is misunderstood!

I had been conditioned to believe,
I had a life to live unselfishly.
And I did at the benefit...
Of my parents.
To find my mother totally giving.
And my dad a humorous wit.

They taught me early in life...
That a black man walking around,
With intelligence is not rare.
What is done with the gift is the challenge.
And I should live to dare the unknown.
Unafraid.
Although scared to death!

Some have chosen to poison themselves.
And have become very successful at it!
While others have selected to be between existences.
You know the type?
Unsatisfied with everything.
Participating in little...
But delivers demands with lofty expectations!

This time my time is mine.
It has been a long time since...
These days have commenced,
To be as I choose to live them.
And not emotionally committed...
To be where my devotion is misunderstood!

Not today!
That's been done.
Today...
Lawrence S. Pertillar can say,
'God?
However 'we' did it,
It has been done.
And I am grateful to know I'm blessed!
Caring less who thinks I am selfish.
Only You, My Father...
Only You,
Know what the real deal has been.
And I feel free not to stop and give explanations,
About the kind of life You have awarded me to live.
Not today!
That's been done.
And to Your satisfaction that leaves me happy! '
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
