Thin Skins

Learning to listen,
With attention not mentioned...
Assists an understanding,
Affording one to comprehend!
If one is willing to absorb...
And not defend from a boredom stored!
A mind will then open,
Choosing not to close!
Letting this process begin,
With a yawning that ends!
But so many sit,
In fidget restless fits!
After realizing something said...
Is directed purposely at them!
And there are those of us,
Spewing words to cuss.
To protect thin skins...
We are too afraid to shed,
To let an honesty enter within!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Things Are Meant To Be

You've got to free it from your mind,
And let things go.
You've got to free this from your mind,
All the time.
You've got to free it from your mind,
To let things go...
Or,
You'll be left behind.

You've got to free it from your mind,
Everything is meant.
You've got to free it from your mind,
You can circumvent events.
You've got to free this from your mind,
All the time...
Because things are meant to be!

There is a freedom knowing,
Things are meant to be.
No need to poll a voter.
Things are meant to be.
Or heat up in a roast.
Things are meant to be.

You've got to free this from your mind,
All the time...
Because things,
Are meant to be!

There is a freedom knowing,
Things are meant to be.
No need to poll a voter.
Things are meant to be.
Or heat up in a roast.
Things are meant to be.

You've got to free it from your mind,
And let things go.
Because...
Things.
Are.
Meant...
To be!

'Things Take Time to Get Accomplished'

In communities without unity,
Where just a few people...
Do as they please,
To destroy the environment...
Meant for 'all' and not for one,
Or the wickedness of two, three and many more.
'They' and their activities are worthless.
Yet what they do is condoned.
Because they are known.
And the lack of progress is shown!
With a slogan quoted to further postpone:
'Things Take Time to Get Accomplished'
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Things To Get

Shallow is the mind,
That accepts to believe...
To dream and wish,
Does not take sweat to drip...
Or sacrifices to make.
But wanted is a quick fix to feel good.

If one just wants things to get,
With hopes to receive attention...
From folks impressed.
And this is wished,
To believe it is happiness?
So be it! Shallow folks don't do headaches.

'Are you shallow? Not shallow?
What are you saying? '

Sometimes it's best just to want things.
Instead of dripping sweat toiling through reality.

'Are you shallow? Not shallow?
What are you saying? '

I wish.
I've been declared too intelligent.
To become beset by guilt.
And found dripping sweat to toil through reality,
For things to get I know I don't need.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
