The Bar Has Been Raised Much Too High

There is a standard set,
In the best of an idealistic premise...
To keep as a measure,
That checks one's advancement.

But expectations lowered,
Will eventually affect...
Those once kept high standards.
Slipping to catch the absence of discipline.

And with a mediocrity achieved...
To come alter the notion of ambition,
A proclamation introduce will claim...
The bar has been raised much too high.

Especially for those...
Seeking their need for attention,
And remedial assistance.
With no guarantee for achievement.

'The bar...
It has been raised again,
And much too high!
It must be lowered.
It must be lowered.
Please follow intructions to lower,
Expectations.'

'The bar...
It has been raised again,
And much too high!
It must be lowered.
It must be lowered.
Please follow intructions to lower,
Expectations.'

This is declared from a robotic voice,
Programmed to monitor classroon activities.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

The Beauty Of My Reality

Keep in mind...
When you decide it is time,
To critique my 'disposition'.
None of the scars I have,
Did you earned.
Keep that in mind!

And remember this...
It took me years to perfect,
The art of being offensive.
And knowing who to direct it to!
Long before you arrived...
I saw those adorn their charades,
To masquerade in disguise.

You...
On the other hand,
Wouldn't understand...
The roots of my embitterness.
Your pains came from TV watching.
With that as an association.
To channel switch or stop with blocking.

You can if you wish dismiss my experiences.
To delude them with your fantasies kept!
But my steps no one has sacrificed to make.
They wouldn't know how they are placed.
Or what it takes to make them.
And that is the beauty of my reality.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

The Beholder Knows What Keeps This Fertile

Perhaps you should use another tool,
To process this.
One that will allow the measurement,
Of prolificness.
Since there is no other way,
You will comprehend it at all.

It's just enough here for you to taste!
Not intended for you to attempt to recreate!
Or complicate your mind,
With 'that' as a possibility.
That mission for you to undertake,
Would not bestow upon you success.

So...
There is no need for your sweat,
To begin to research a way to address it.
Trust me...
The beholder knows what keeps this fertile.
And aligned and in tune with the times!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

The Belief System

Some folks do things,
Because they want others to 'believe'...
They 'are' somebody.

Who knows what's up,
The sleeves of people like these.

And those folks with 'beliefs'
Who know they have 'always' been 'somebody'
Don't need to look for acknowledgement.
They are going to get it anyway.
Because of who they are!
And wherever they are...
Good deeds done,
Seem to be always something done they do.

There is no belief system used to convince.
There is an obviousness without the need to mention.
It is in the existence,
That transcends what may or may not be...
What comes forward off of people's lips,
For others to physically with their eyes see.
And...
It is not because of what they want others to believe!
That this is so,
From embellished exaggerations.
Entertaining and released from an implementation.
And fantasies from them born...
To come to life and grow!

It is in the observation,
That proves a deserving worthiness...
Upon which others bestow,
Those of merit that receive attention.

Leaving to be distanced,
Those folks who wish others to believe
They are 'somebody'.
And they are...
Provoked into some self serving action.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
