The Nuts That Are Seen Are Not Pecan

A choice made to separate, '
With others of like minds to isolate...
Over time in this kind of confinement,
Diminishes the health of mental wellness.
And this observation,
Is witnessed without needed statistics...
Over studied by celebrated psychologists,
To prove with shared findings...
As to which group out of their minds,
Satisfies an ongoing and prolonged research.
Since the proof has served up the madness,
Effective yet denied...
Where the grass is kept pristine to accept.
But the nuts that are seen are not pecan.
Nor are they falling to keep hidden behind trees.
Or picked from the ground where peanuts are found,
In climates warm and with inviting sensibilities.
No!
These nuts have only one objective!
To appear impressive...That's all. That's it!
And not to address mental stability.
Admitting this to reveal its existence,
Would not appease those of proper etiquette.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

The Obnoxious Ones

Recession?
From what use to be to what is now,
Is a permanent 'degression'.
There is no 'procession' back to retrieve beliefs.
To feel relieved with a breathing done freely.
Not this time around!

And it does not matter who helms or leads,
This drastic shift!
Those accustomed to traditions,
That allowed their procrastinations...
Will be lost in the midst of this swift quickness.
To find they are unable to adjust to it.
Like those who have been treated with disrespect.
As if they did not exist...
To dream and wish.

Recession?
From what use to be to what is now,
Is permanent.
And a lesson for those who oppose differences.
Never to recover from their dismissal as misfits!
By the very people they shunned.
Who view them now as the obnoxious ones,
Stung to cling...
Onto a painful sting,
By their own actions done to feel so real.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

The Obvious

The obvious does have its way,
To offend those pretending...
Each step they had taken and wilfully,
Somehow blindsided...
To have led them astray.

Even children unfamiliar,
Will make comments about what is seen.
Only to be told by those preferring 'blindness',
To look elsewhere and with immediacy...
For the purpose to keep them innocent.
And explanations kept nonexistent.

The obvious does have its way,
To offend those pretending.
As current events come to diminish and quick,
A quality of life sliding into an oblivion.
To disregard a momentum as a coincidence.

Yet upset and alarmed,
People everywhere are beginning to get.
Although the obvious has been mentioned,
By the ones already selected and picked...
To be ignored as misfits and dissidents.

For whatever the reasons people refuse to connect,
Steps they have taken...
But wont and can't acknowledge the affects they left,
Will always produce those reducing their involvement.
To rely on the blaming of someone else,
Of causing their lives to live to be limited and minimized.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

The Obvious Is Seldom Admitted

I have discovered the obvious,
Is seldom admitted to examine...
By those choosing to refuse,
To see what keeps them...
Falling to their knees.
But will,
However...
Quickly agree to having bad luck.
As if in the doing,
A bestowing of empathy is delivered.
And comes with a gift of knee pads.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
