This Aint Nuthin' But What It Is

This aint nuthin' but what it is!
And...
You can choose to shelter it in with disbelief.
Or...
Accept like it is because its not gonna leave.

And...
This aint nuthin' but what it is!
Nothing but what it is.
And...
This aint nuthin' but what it is!
Nothing but what it is.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

This Being Human Business

From squalor and trash,
A rising is witnessed.
Forgiveness is wished,
But a pain condoned...
Has been felt alone although unshown.

A mind conflicted frees from its limits.
Breaks to escape to initiate a taste of heartache.
And a choice is made to unleash and invade...
With a loosening of a harnessed and harbored feeling.
Sitting with an itch that can not be dismissed.

Sitting between a forgetting with forgiveness.
And a demeaning remembered intentionally inflicted.
What should one do...
When a gratefulness of blessings expressed,
Has also spoiled too?

Hmmm...
This being human business isn't easy.
Especially when an unwanted suffering has been endured.

'Shouldn't that be...
This 'human being' business? '

I got up early this morning,
So I would not have to listen to you.
Now go back to sleep.
These thoughts I'm having,
Are not subconscious, thank you.

'You are right!
This being 'human' business isn't easy!
At all.'

Whatever.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

This Butterfly Has Been Cocooned

Can ants gathering in the smallest of hills...
Prevent the butterfly from flaunting its color?
They may prejudge its beauty.
And ability to attract.
That is established and known.
They will still be ants.
This butterfly has been cocooned.
And is not wounded by their remarks.
As it embarks on its journey.
Free to glorify its life!
It flies!
And without trying...
Sparks attention!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

This Christmas That's My Wish

And I think of Christmas,
Through the year.
Of falling snow,
And flying deer.
Hearing jingle bells...
And carols of noël.

And with each gift I pick and choose...
There comes this special wish,
That happiness will lift all smiles...
And no one's dream is missed!

This is Christmas!
There is such a joy in me!
I still see Santa Claus...
Rushing quick with deliveries.

And I know it's getting near that time...
When snow and hope appears.
As laughter fills the smiling eyes,
Of every child I'm near.

This is Christmas!
And there is such a joy in me!
I still see Santa Claus...
Rushing quick with deliveries.

And I think of Christmas,
Through the year.
Of falling snow,
And flying deer.
Hearing jingle bells...
And carols of noël.

And with each gift I pick and choose...
There comes this special wish,
That happiness will lift all smiles...
And no one's dream is missed!

This Christmas...
That's my wish!
