Admire, I Do...You

Admire,
I do...
You.

Admitting it is not as easy.
This feeling I have is new.
Over the years it grew.
And one day out of the 'blue',
I just knew.

Admire,
I do...
You.

The way you walk,
With your head held up.
Your eyes so wise and bright.

Your words direct,
I now respect.
With my mind more open.
And more prepared to accept.

Admire,
I do...
You.

Those times we shared.
With you there caring.
And I then unaware...
Just how much you cared.

And today I reflect,
Upon my attitude.
And those awful moods you met,
You did not let upset you.
When you could...
And perhaps should have left,
Me.

Admire,
I do...
You.
And after all those things I put you through,
You stayed.

With me,
You stayed!
With me,
You stayed!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Admit What Has Been Broken

How can anyone fix what has been broken?
What value of it has been restored?
Can a heart mend with a doing to forget?
Can a pain to experience,
Truly be forgiven without remembering it?
Can anyone who had loved being in a relationship,
Awaken one day wishing from it to split?
Of course.
That's why people divorce.

And those who believe,
They deserve dividends to them received...
For their emotional investment,
Should leave!
With it acknowledged what had been deposited,
Isn't worth the grief.
The best thing to do is to accept responsibility,
And admit what has been broken can not be fixed...
To mend as if the act of it did not exist.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Adolescent Deeds

Spoiled children encouraged,
To sit and witness their siblings...
Restricted from doing things,
They believe can be manipulated eventually...
Will make attempts to do anything.
If this means to them,
A getting of an attention given.
Believing with an 'innocence',
A 'cuteness' is determined.

But some children grow.
To leave behind their childishness.
With a learning not to disrespect.
Or expect child-like tantrums accepted,
Without someone rejecting their selfishness.

To then make claims of being neglected,
When left to be held accountable...
For actions that reflect,
Immaturity at its best.

And as aults who have aged,
These same 'children' become insulted.
When others too mature no longer will endure,
With a tolerance depleted and absent to feed...
Spoiled children encourage,
To perform adolescent deeds.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Adolescent Minds

Giving time to adolescent minds,
Limited and confined...
To a wasting of one's valuable time done,
Just to appease a craving to release...
A repeating of an obvious shallowness.

Although unfortunate this is,
What tools can one use to rid of such pests?
Pests committed to nonsense and patience to test?
And...
To 'not' acknowledge them guarantees no one rest.

Especially when kept minds like these refuse to leave,
Without making an assortment of childish attempts...
To 'flutter' around with a kept 'buzzing' that gets intense,
Until someone wanting not to get stung...
Submits by giving that adolescent mind attention.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
