As If To Make Fashion Statements

Observing a segment of the population,
Walking around as best as they can...
With accepted self inflicted disabilities,
As if to make fashion statements...
Huge profits are being made,
To keep them mentally attached...
And kept conditioned to beliefs,
A suffering done they do...
Represents an honorable existence.
And those who appear to be perfectly healthy,
Are 'assumed' to be visitors from out of town.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

As if You Are Entitled to Do as You Please

Nothing done did you do,
Can be that easily dismissed...
From the act of you doing it.

And your belief that a forgiveness saves...
Has played out,
For those no longer...
In a forgetting of the past,
To start over again mode.

There is no patience anyone has,
For that kind of self centeredness.
As if you are entitled to do as you please.

Not here.
Not with me.
I can only play a fool for so long.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

As If You Were A Window With Dust And Smudges On It

You perceive everything you do,
As a prerequisite of acceptance by others.
Don't you?
No matter what it is,
You edit it as approved.
Even lieing to yourself,
You believe should be forgven.
And your dishonesty charaded,
Others should receive without debate or hesitation.

Well,
I have been healed from any wounds.
Deliberately afflicting my mental stability.
And I don't allow either those conscious,
Or those protecting their unconsciousness.
The opportunity to reflect the disrespect,
They have for themselves up in my face.
I know my self worth and earned value obtained.

You?
Perceive everything you do,
As a prerequisite of acceptance by others.
Me?
I live in this neighborhood.
But I am not of it.
And that is a choice.
Not a sacrifice.

And I am certainly not going to define,
How I wish to be treated.
By those who wouldn't have a clue,
Of what a comprehending of respect means.
Your insecurities wont open that gate.

And I don't want to have your ego believe me to be angry.
Or bitter.
OR any of those things you'd like to repeat to your friends.

I just want to make this clear to you face to face.
On a one on one.
The backstabbing you've done to me.
I've been aware of it.
But the pushing of my buttons,
To allow a squeezing more of a forgiveness from me to you done.
Is no longer here for you to do as in days gone to forget.
I see through you,
As if you were a window with dust and smudges on it.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

As If...

This storm has lingered too long.
And collecting from its debris,
Finds many at ease with this!

As if...
Those accept
With addictions to please.
As if...
Tears are okay to fall,
To gather more than rain.
With sunshine stalled,
Behind walls
Of slow moving clouds.
As if...
This storm is prolonged by doubt!
Fearing the leaving of it...
Would create a draught.
As if wishes to dismiss it,
Would be found out!
And gone would be the pouts shown!

Could we then expect cheering in sunlight.
To begin?
Or would the atmosphere despair,
By those missing gloom...
Finding a comfort everywhere.

This storm has lingered too long.
As we have become suspicious,
Of the freshness of clearing skies.
As if...
The change seen in happy eyes,
Is despised like an unwanted stranger!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
