  2029.     

Comeon! Agree With Me

I know I've been critical of my opponent,
With a wish from the beginning to see him fail.
And I know his attempts have been publicly presented.
While those I have made have yet to prevail.
But mentioning his failures adds a wind to my sail.

Comeon!
Agree with me.
Let us all demonize his efforts.
Okay?

And I know for many years,
I have made promises intended but did not exist.
But all I ask of you is to give me a chance,
To work on those promises...
With a hope in your minds they will become enhanced.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Comes As Soothing As Good News

As I age in times ageless,
With those afraid to leave their youth!
I find myself discovering a wealth,
Of understanding I am handed and pursue.
And the magic of this...
Is not so much that I have aged.
It seems that I
No longer deny
My triumphs or those delays!
With a patience that has grown,
To unmask and live my life...
I find that I am the first to admit wrong,
And not to insist that I can be happily right!
Taking my time to make up my mind,
Has left a satisfaction I alone approve.
Knowing that I still try to do my best...
And doing what I damn well choose!
Realizing I am through making excuses,
For me comes as soothing as good news!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  2031.     

Comes With Such Ease

Why can't I undo my habits?
Those that most enjoy my time?
I'd like to nab each one I've got
And leave it with a promise
To be left finally behind!

Why can't I undo temptations,
That fence me in like a fort I protect?
I deny suspecting glances...
Those that catch me in the midst of neglect!

And IF I should give up all that teased,
I say to myself I will not be pleased!
And I grab hold to my habits
Since doing this comes with such ease!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  2032.     

Comfort Zones Owned

No one can claim,
To have comfort zones owned.
Or a place to go totally unaffected,
By the goings on of heightening tensions...
Practiced and condoned.
Whether or not this is conscious.

And those under suspicion,
Seeking to cease dilemmas.
Are those outspoken with no hidden agenda,
But are accused to be nonconformists...
Expressing negativity to spoil those with delusions,
Holding on tightly to them with a wish they are kept.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
