The Upkeep Of Images

Approaching a broken fence,
With a brush and a can of paint...
Believing to change its appearance,
With a few minutes given to it.
And a mending with a healing,
Of fresh and accepted perceptions...
Would again begin...is quite admirable.

However,
Wouldn't it be better and cost effective,
If denials were rejected?
And a broken fence needing to be removed,
Would be viewed as a needed thing to do?
IF denials and excuses were not used,
To dilute with a diffusing of reality.

'Maybe you are right.
None of us have heard it stated that way.
We have spent millions,
On the upkeep of images...
And outdated appearances.
With a hope our efforts would influence,
Those times we wish unchanged to stay...
With us forever,
In a never-to-age-land of fantasies.'
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

The Uprising Of Conflicts

How profound,
Statements made in the past...
Have come back to trespass,
To capture imaginations...
With undivided attention given to them.

'Chickens have come home to roost.'
Boasted one from a pulpit,
To cause an uproar to despise him.

'The practice of cowardice when facing racial tensions.'
One had mentioned to declare a people,
And their daily affairs to describe denials everywhere.

But it is all out there!
As if prophets had prescribe them.
Leaving bliss and ignorance no longer a satisfying mix.
In a world where lives are being afflicted,
By the uprising of conflicts based upon race,
AND religious sentiments.

How profound,
Statements made in the past...
Have come back to trespass,
To capture imaginations...
With undivided attention given to them.
And yet there are still those carrying their pretentions,
That none of this exists.

But it is all out there!
As if prophets had prescribe them.
Leaving bliss and ignorance no longer a satisfying mix.
In a world where lives are being afflicted,
By the uprising of conflicts based upon race,
AND religious sentiments.

The Urgent Revisiting Of It

If 'that' which should have been in place,
Is not and slips away.
Because of a hesitating procrastination,
With excuses prioriticized and made!
A rushing done today,
That should have taken time...
Those days before yesterday.
Can be thought of opportunities,
That came and faded to be erased.

There is nothing that will be done tomorrow,
With a necessity that comes...
That allows one to chase.
It just silences the support,
For the significance of importance!
And a significance that drifts,
Can be revived...
With an insistence that invites,
The urgent revisiting of it!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

The Validity Of Truth

Fewer people are discovered and heard,
Arguing over the validity of a truth they see...
To witness.

Clearly there is a division of a consciousness,
Existing.
Opposed to the one,
Many insist that is wished.

Headed towards an abyss solicited,
Are those with beliefs delusions they can keep.
Although awaiting with an obvious permanance,
Are the facts of life to awaken those asleep.

Fewer people are discovered and heard,
Arguing over the validity of a truth they see...
To witness.
And those unaware their pretentions kept,
Will eventually leave them with no life left to live.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
