  1877.     

Accepted Hypocrisy

I apologize.
But with no intent,
Did I approach you to offend.
I have never accepted hypocrisy.
And I know the doing of it,
You would find me to approve.
But I apologize,
And with no intent...
Do I wish to want this,
To prove to you I can do.
Even if I could,
How would my doing it...
Be of benefit to you?
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  1878.     

Accepted With A Teaching As Fact

It often amazes,
How literal interpretations given...
By those who are clueless,
Can be accepted with a teaching as fact.
To have not one of the lessons learned,
Be of substance.
But thrive on allegations AND debated.

'Where are your facts? '

~Facts?
These are not the times,
To confuse the issues with those.~
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  1879.     

Accepting

I too had sat,
Wishing that an 'is'...
Wasn't.
And living through those experiences...
That came to stay in my head,
And wouldn't from me leave!

I too had sat,
Wishing that an 'is'...
Wasn't.
And I could close my eyes,
With a squeeziing out...
Of anything unpleasant!

I too had sat,
Wishing that an 'is'...
Wasn't.
With a beginning again,
Of an 'is'...
Meant.

And forever I would live...
A life free of unexpected grief and sorrow.
And yet...
Those yesterdays came and went.
Leaving me to learn and grow...
Accepting some things I just could not reject!

And not be afraid to do...
The accepting.
Even if I wept or was swept up in a happiness,
In the doing of it.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  1880.     

Accepting To Acknowledge Violence

Accepting to acknowledge violence,
For the purpose to compete and not end...
Only prepares a future generation,
To disregard the meaning and existence of peace.
But to think of it as a thing antiquated.
When discussions and talks of humanity and unity,
Was at a time when technology...
And the use of sophisticated weapons,
Had not for them yet been invented.
To ensure conflicts created,
Would not cease but increase to eliminate those...
They determined were meek and too weak to control.
With a continuance to build exhibits in museums to visit,
To have each phase documented and historically told.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
