A Devalued Piece of Paper

There are those who view talents and gifts,
Others may be blessed with...
As a means for them to seek attachment,
To a dollar sign.

If falling leaves were declared to have monetary value,
There would be people killing themselves to rake them...
From wherever they fell in people's yards.
Or be seen chasing them as they blew in the wind.

A mindset attached to money like that,
Is as happy as a lobster caught and thrown in boiling water.
What they have or have not represents their self worth.
And it is sad for anyone to feel that enslaved,
By a devalued piece of paper.
Never to enable one to afford a peace of mind.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

A Devil To Do A Deed

Impossible it is to convince anyone,
Who has been ignored with it to go unnoticed,
That they should become provoked...
By an attention given to them by others,
Who discuss rescinding the attention given...
Enough to disturb one's purpose and focus.
One without thought or feelings to deny,
As to why or reason they should feel offended.

And send from them the attention givers do,
A devil to do a 'deed' to pursue.

'Excuse me,
But...
The people over there are ignoring you.'

~Who? ~

'The people over there.
The ones rolling their eyes.
And now slowly turning their backs.'

~Okay.~

'But shouldn't it bother you? '

~Why?
I've never known them.
And they certainly don't know me.~

'They had been expecting you,
To miss the attention.
The attention they had given.
But now refuse it to give.'

~Oh yeah?
Since when? ~

'Since...
Well,
Since I came to tell you about it.'

~Okay.
Tell them I've noticed you did a good job.
But not good enough to abandon my focus.
I'm about the work.
And not an ego they believe they serve.~

'Comeon...
At least wave.
You're embarrassing me.'
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

A Difference That Could Be Made

Notoriety and fame is all relative.
If a message has content.
How that message is delivered,
And by who should not matter.
Or who 'influential' is in support of it!
However,
Many who miss 'messages'...
Often miss the point of them.

It should not matter if someone has notoriety,
If a message with content is delivered to be accepted.
Although...
To many of us this makes a difference.
And a difference that could be made,
Skips away from our comprehension.

'But...
WHO are 'you' to know this?
And 'why' should it be of 'our' concern? '
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  2032.     

A Different Reception

Why is it so many view themselves,
Through self-indulgent eyes?
To perceive their misdeeds,
Whenever they were committed...
Insist with time passed,
Their doings done to others...
Should automatically be forgotten.
Or at least be forgiven.

'Wassup? What's happenin'? '

To then become offended,
When those they have victimized...
Should 'now' apologize for THEIR rude actions.
Or give a consideration to their noticed temperments.
And not give an impression,
They have no interest in discussing what took place...
Or when or the reasons of why those past events...
To be patched up to mend with a making of sense.
Although what had been done was with intention meant.

An effective betrayal just not fade away to make okay!
Nor do those emotions that linger to come reminisced...
Do so with a welcomed hospitality to give,
When they arrive unexpectedly to confront a bitterness...
Still felt no matter how long the time,
Spent between their uninvited visits.

~WHAT do 'you' want?
And make it quick.~

'I expected a different reception,
Than to have...

A door slammed.
In my face!
Uh...uh...
Maybe,
Another time would be better?
Hello?
