Before a Grin of Satisfaction Lifts

Let's face it.
When someone says,
'You look good for 'your' age! '
The emphasis is on 'your'!
That is not to be interpreted,
As a sign that you appear decades younger!
You do not!
And the next time someone says that to you...
Do not begin blushing,
As a customary response!
Stop and think...
'What age do they think I am? '

Some of us who have heard that comment,
Seem to think the reference is made
Because we look as if we are still waiting
To be asked to the senior prom!
AGAIN!
When in fact...
I've seen dinosaurs in museums,
And I am amazed how well they look!
And they have been well preserved,
Bones and all!

Had you thought...
When someone expresses,
'You look good, for 'your' age! '
They are not thinking,
'My God,
That relic is 'still' around?
And walking unaided...
Making eye contact without assistance?
Am I witnessing a miracle or what? '

Those thoughts should first enter 'your' mind,
BEFORE a grin of satisfaction...
Lifts your wrinkled cheeks!
The ones on your behind,
And those on your face!
And 'if' a younger person says that to you...
You return one of the most ugliest looks you can!
Immediately you know they are thinking...
'I will never get that old and 'still' enjoy my life! '
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Before A Gripping Hand Can Affix To It

I was told as a child,
That money did not grow on trees.
And as soon as I accepted the concept,
Of earning it...
I don't have it in my pockets long enough,
To get familiar with its presence.

If someone was to attempt to pick my pockets,
I am sure they would ask for tips...
As to how I have managed to survive,
On a fixed income...
That comes to go before I am aware of it.
And I appear as if i am the 'king' of abundance.

It's like this...
If something comes to go,
Before a gripping hand can affix to it to identify...
It becomes like a memory embellished.
And as time moves on to go by,
That which is embellished becomes one's reality.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Before a Mindset Awakens

This goes deeper than a four year fix.
No bandage applied by either candidate,
Will trick a mend to this.
This is some complicated stuff,
That has been brewed...
And left to sit.
In the hopes that racial divisions
Will take people's minds off of it!

This goes deeper than a four year fix.
The usual games they have played,
Have upon them made a twist.
And they are doing the best they can,
To try to figure their own mess out.
But this has more to do with a consciousness.
One far greater...
Than the nonsense that drops,
Out of their manipulating and deceiving mouths.

This goes deeper than a four year fix.
In fact the mending that will come from it...
Will first bring to those who created this,
A pain that reflects their deceptiveness.
And those who believed in them...
Much pain before a mindset awakens,
With complete and total change.
That is the only gain that results from this game!

Before And Not After

Many have found to discover,
Time spent to waste on a daily basis.
And socializing is okay!
There is nothing wrong with it.

But who is laying down concrete foundations,
For future generations to imitate?
Before and not after,
Their identities from them...
Have been permanently erased.

And those too immature today,
Are doing the best they can to escape...
From accountable responsibility.
Preferring in most cases to place the blame,
With exchanges of claims on another's back.

Many have found to discover,
Time spent to waste on a daily basis.
And socializing is okay!
There is nothing wrong with it.

However...
Once depicting those as 'them' and 'they',
No longer plays well on a rocky field of lazy pickers.
And those seen trashing it...
Seem gutless to clean up their acts.

Who is laying down concrete foundations,
For future generations to imitate?
Before and not after,
Their identities from them...
Have been permanently erased.

And those too immature today,
Are doing the best they can to escape...
From accountable responsibility.
Preferring in most cases to place the blame,
With exchanges of claims on another's back.
