As The Value Of It Fades Away

People associate money with success.
Or the feeding of the concept of it.
And yet,
The misery kept in the minds of those...
Who have an access to money,
Is an absence of feeling accepted.

Leaving those who feel successful,
Most of the time...
And managing to do so,
Without a dime in their pockets.
Or a held up nose to pose.

Money today as the value of it fades away...
Has many upset they can not flaunt their success.
While those feeling they have accomplished a deed,
Done at their best...
Appear to have a treasure chest of gold hidden.
What in their minds are they connected to?
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  2030.     

As Their Visions Fade

Kept too afraid to wake up.
With a clarity to embrace...
To face it unobstructed.

Afraid they are,
To be separated from their fantasies.
Fantasies fractured they want back intact.
Fixed with a permanance and glued to conceal,
Not a scratch to distract them.

Afraid to fully awaken and they don't know what to do.
And everyone they've placed in leadership positions,
Have been picked to delude them and keep them from truth.

Afraid to wake up!
Yet the truth pursues.
Afraid to awaken so crazed they remain.
With a staying as their visions fade.
To allow excuses made as their minds decay.

Kept too afraid to wake up.
With a clarity to embrace...
To face it unobstructed.

But...
No matter what they do it is truth that appears.
A truth that can not be avoided,
With wishes from them it suddenly disappears.
This truth that stays they can not pray away.
And as their visions fade to make them crazed,
It is the keeping of their delusions...
Protected to seduce,
That have made them that way!

Fearing...
To be separated from their fantasies.
Fearing...
Fantasies fractured they want wont come back.
Fearing...
A clarity and truth they perceive attacks!
Fearing...
Conflicts they had wished can be dismissed.
And as their visions fade to make them crazed,
Everyday they pray...
For a fix that glues with a permanence,
Delusions they knew before truth pursued.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

As These Days We Live Speed Forward

Your arguments,
To intentionally incense...
Make even less common sense,
As these days we live speed forward!

And the wickedness spewed from your lips,
Has become more obvious.
And the support you once enjoyed from this...
Brings upon disgust from those who inisist you be dismissed.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

As Those Unconscious Sleep

If not for love of humanity,
Would they outspoken speak?
If satisfied with injustices,
Acceptable would these observances be.

Why are some thoughtful?
Why others not?
Why do many dropp their priorities,
To try to stop such inequities?

If not for love of humanity,
Would they outspoken speak?
If satisfied with injustices,
Acceptable would these observances be.

As those unconscious sleep.
Upon self righteous fantasies to keep!
These are the lives lived and wished.
To be as far away from those in need.
And complaining to others,
How those deserving have no right to exist.
How those deserving,
Should be ignored and dismissed.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
