This Has Never Been A Surprise

To you,
This may come as a shock.
But to me,
This has never been a surprise.
Look in my eyes!

Believe it or not...
It is not you but God,
That controls my destiny.
I knew you would have that reaction.
I knew you would tremble...
With a buckling of your knees.
But it is true...
I've never viewed you that way!

I've been trying to tell you that.
But somehow that message has been lost.
I've been trying to tell you that.
I didn't know my confession would do you like this!
Please stop crying!
I'll still call you boss.
But stop your weeping...
I insist!

To you,
This may come as a shock.
But to me,
This has never been a surprise.
Look in my eyes!

Believe it or not...
It is not you but God,
That controls my destiny.

This has never been a surprise.
Although this has been your belief.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

This Has Never Been Rare

Incite,
They do.
With a barricade...
To masquerade insecurities.

It took overnight,
To fight themselves...
Over their rights!

And a greed that now sees them seething...
With heated breath felt,
Close to the nose of those they chose.

They see themselves as enemies.
Distrusted with beliefs...
That their way of life was jeopardized,
By those that despised them.

But none could do that better,
Than they do it...
To themselves!

Incite,
They do.
With a barricade...
To masquerade insecurities.
And threats like these...
They defend,
With an absence of common sense...
So obvious everywhere.

And this has never been rare.
It has not been adopted,
To address as an issue.
Sensitivities keep them conflicted.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

This Has Not Been A Part Of My Experience

You come to me with a desire,
To have me explain...
How best to take each step you make,
On the way to accomplish 'your' dream.

I admire that and I am flattered!

But what I would like to see you do...
First,
Is a stumbling fall as your crawl to your feet.
I want to see you move on from mistakes...
You believe defeat.

I want to see tears in your eyes,
Cried!
That you alone eventually dry.
I want you 'then' to come to me,
Acknowledging there is an understanding...
You have gained with relief.

Do not come to me,
Expecting a free trip to the beach.
With a relaxing done...
As you observe me showing you,
How to best build 'your' sandcastle.

As you direct what you would like,
From a 'vision' you wish to come alive...
While I sweat producing your fantasy!
This...
Has not been a part of my experience!
And I do not wish now to invite it.

What I've lived to overcome...
From you has been kept unseen.
And if we do lay on the beach...
It will be 'you' applying on my skin,
Any request I have for Sun blocking screen.
That from you to me will be a given,
I hope you feel will be deserved.

You have any other questions?
Or realities you have not faced?
Remember...
I am here with a wish,
To see you succeed.

This Havoc

They attempt to silence those...
Who are against their beliefs!
And yet it is their beliefs...
That loudly shout out,
For change!
Nothing about them or what is valued,
Has remained the same.
And...
No one silenced has created this havoc!
Or with such a disturbance to focus on chaos.
Anyone seeking peace,
Is not looking for it through conflict!
No one is against their beliefs at all.
The concept is there!
The ideals are magnificent.
However...
The reality of the practice,
Is missing in action!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
