What It Takes To Be Decisive

Very few who have lived their lives,
Pursuing in public view what it is they do...
Have been exempt from being criticized.
Or unaware of what they have tolerated,
To just make attempts of their pursuits.

The only ones who do things done,
With a seeking to get approval...
And wish for an acceptance from 'anyone',
Are those not devoted or have sacrificed...
To know what it takes to be decisive.

And yet...
Those who publicly express being upset,
By an attention someone else gets...
Are those who spend their entire lives,
On the sidelines critizing without taking forward steps.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  1878.     

What Life Means When It's Seen To Love

Only those who've made mistakes,
Seem to know more what it takes...
To live life and comprehend,
A having of patience benefits them.

Only those who've sacrificed,
Seem to know more what it's like...
To be disciplined within,
With a letting go of what offends.

And a precious beauty,
Is noticed with a closeness that begins.
This fresh kept beauty,
Connects with a budding that doesn't end...
What life means when it's seen to love!

Only those who've made mistakes,
Seem to know more what it takes...
To live life and comprehend,
A having of patience benefits them.

And...
A precious beauty,
Is noticed with a closeness that begins.
So fresh is this kept beauty,
Connecting with a budding...
That doesn't end,
What life means when it's seen to love!

Feeding conflicts with a selfishness,
Affects us all.
To make less sense when witnessed,
Just to...
Have someone else fall.

Wishing someone fails,
Only brings to us a grief...
When it's recognized a forest,
Would not exist without its different trees.

And...
A precious beauty,
Is noticed with a closeness that begins.
So fresh is this kept beauty,
Connecting with a budding...
That doesn't end,
What life means when it's seen to love!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  1879.     

What Makes You Think You're So Special?

Anyone with intent to offend then pretends,
What was done had been meant to be a joke...
To not provoke retaliation but laughter,
Represents the sick mindset...
Of many caught in the midst of conflict,
With a belief they are entitled...
To do and say what they please.
To then perceive a receiving of payback,
Isn't deserving to get from someone made upset...
By a thoughtlessness not accepted to excuse,
As trying to have a bit of fun...
But often this kind of fun is done at someone else's,
Expense.

'Lighten up.
Do you really believe I would say anything to hurt you,
If I knew you would take it so seriously? '

~But what you did was lie to have others believe that lie.~

'Oh?
So 'now' I should be held accountable for what others believe? '

~Why say anything if you know it not to be true? ~

'People do that everyday.
Why should you be the one offended? '

~Do you know what defamation of character is? ~

'Do you know the way to San Jose?
Comeon, please.
Lighten Up.
What makes you think you're so special? '
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

What On Earth Were We Thinking

It is wonderful and great,
To know people are beginning...
To gather together to rally around,
The destructive effects of crime and gun violence.
And this has begun to be noticed amongst them,
With their eyes opened wide and this is found.

It is wonderful and great,
An appreciation for life is beginning to be admitted.
And the quality of it sits in their hands.
The only thing left to tackle is ignorance.
To prove to anyone interested,
That all their actions have allowed it to exist.

It is wonderful and great,
People are beginning to face the truth.
Without it not to offend their delusions kept.
And perhaps one day when people look back,
At these times they will say and unafraid to face facts...
'What on Earth were we thinking when we chose ignorance?
To chased those who warned us away? '
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
