The Giver Should Have Known

Given to take for what it is from another,
Who has only one desire and that is to give...
Is less time consuming.
And relieves one from assumptions.
Especially when an appreciation isn't exchanged,
In the doing what has been done.
But then the receiver pretends a getting offends.
And what has been given is completely different,
From what had been wished that silences expectations.
Or disappoints a heighten anticipated excitement.
To then hear complaints upon an accepting of it,
With a pointless explanation...
That the giver should have known what was preferred.
Although the receiver accepts,
As a suitable substitute to tolerate making an exception...
To have the act of giving a process that dissipates.
And erased is a sincerity the giver had in the first place,
To never attempt in a doing to do ever for that one again...
For the sake of seeing another pleased by a doing done,
Unexpectedly.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

The Givers

Snip it.
What complaint would you have,
IF you had a heart that gave?
Quit it?
You are just part of this experience,
Life!
It is not about you or your whims!
The givers receive no attention at all.
And there you are falling down with tantrums!
Going ignored are your calls.
Snip it quick.
Shut your lips.
No tree grows from a branch.
When a leaf is released from it,
It dies, to wither and rust from its visit.
Connected are we all to this,
Life!
All your needs could be met...
IF your greed did not set things,
Off balance.
With needs you only feed.
One day you will learn,
All your suffering has been well earned...
By you!
Feeling screwed by the things you do?
You wouldn't feel this way,
IF you lived each day to 'give'!
You look for ways to take, use and squander!
That's why you wonder and wander...
Seeking to reap from life what is good!
What have you done?
Are you looking for ways to give to anyone?
Or are you here just to take?
Well...
Take this!
Shut your lips,
And learn what it is to give!
And all that this life is,
Can be yours.
You will receive what is deserved.
The givers serve without a mumbling word!
And all that is heard from you...
Are offers to undo what is done.
Takers get back,
That which has been given...
And comes to them in abundance!
A rusting of a nothingness achieved.
Leaving them with the results,
Of their selfish and hoarded greed.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

The Giving Power To

Given power to...
Upset and disconnect.
And...
Reject the best.
And...
Exaggerate and stretch,
A lie to make it true...
Is done,
And with a motive.
But,
The giving power to...
Fix and uplift with hope,
Flows with a flushing...
Down the drain.

The giving power to...
Upset and disconnect.
And...
Reject the best.
Is...
What people do!

Yes,
The giving power to...
Fix and uplift with hope,
Flows with a flushing...
Down the drain.
And that is true.

Yes...
The giving power to,
Truth, peace and happiness...
As best as it can get,
Is not pursued.

No...
The giving power to,
Truth, peace and happiness...
As yet,
Is not...
Done to do.

The giving power to...
Undo a mess to correct,
Is...
Not pursued!

The giving power to...
Undo a mess to correct,
Is...
Not pursued!

NO!
The giving power to...
Undo a mess to correct,
Is...
Not pursued!

The Glare Of Threats

Unafraid of the challenge,
One dares to overcome...
The glare of threats.

And without regret,
Forward steps are taken.

Limitations are removed.
And the air one breathes,
Seems to sweeten.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
