  1877.     

Accomodate Yourself

You are here to do what?
Accomodate me?
In the doing of what?
Doing my best to promote 'your' dreams.
The ones you say are prioritized,
But you procrastinate to do other things?

You're here to accomodate,
My ideas to sell your skills.
The ones you hesitate in soliciting yourself.
But believe I should 'kill' myself in the doing?
You are here to accomodate me?
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  1878.     

Accomodating

Why have I not heard from you?
You don't answer my messages.
Nor my knocks on the door.
Am I being ignored?

'It has taken me a long time to realize,
That switch that says 'Accomodating'...
Had always been on.
And when I recently turned it off...
I got so much accomplished.

Who knew that's all I had to do...
To restore a respect taken for granted,
By others...
Of my time.
There is so much I am learning,
About how I am regarded.'
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  1879.     

Accompanied by a Wishful Vigor

By the time I was twenty-one years old,
I had served in the military.
Married and had a child.
Even I am amazed my clarity is unphased.
Or crazed by experiences.

That seems like lifetimes ago today.
Since between that time and now,
Those who are much younger than I am...
Are physically and mentally out of shape.

So glad I am I have finished several races.
With an acknowledgement I have made mistakes.
Met truth.
And stay away from delusions.
Doing that was difficult to do.

So many I knew,
Are 'still' undecided...
As to whose life to live.
And which races to enter to begin.
To BEGIN!
Can you imagine?

When I hear some of them mention retirement,
I wonder from what?
How can one retire,
From uninspiring routines?
And to do what next?
A shifting of a butt to remain in a similar scene?

Thank God I chose to specialize in the living of my life.
And not pretend a crawling on my knees done publicly,
Was not embarrassing.
It was.
But the recovery?
Introduced me to a peace of mind and happiness,
I can not replace by faking it.

I have finished several races!
And I was 'thisclose' on giving up on a few.
You know...
Making those easy excuses for myself.
Like many choose to do,
To prove they can successfully procrastinate.

And,
With an embellished zest.
Accompanied by a wishful vigor.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  1880.     

Accompanied With Empathy

Why would someone do a thing on purpose,
To then declare the act as a mistake?
And then expect to be forgiven,
Accompanied with empathy, comprehension...
And a dinner invitation extended,
By the one who has been offended...
But has elected to offer,
An all expense paid trip to the Caribbean...
For two weeks just to show,
there are no feelings of retribution.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
