Wake Up, Baby

Did you think that yesterdays,
Were coming back to be relived?
Without witnessing everyday...
Dismissing what each day brings and gives.

Did you believe that sitting,
Wishing for a time gone and passed...
Would actually make a difference,
If you held on...
Wanting those moments to always last.

As the sands of time,
Quickly slipped...
Through an hour glass!

Did you think that yesterdays,
Were yours alone to keep?
As you tossed and turn with hopes...
Losing more than just your sleep!

Did you wish for a season,
That came...
Never to go away?

Wake up, baby...
From your spell!
Catching up with reality...
Is a choice you should choose.
Than to dwell in your own created hell,
To lose your mind today.

You will not be receiving any interest,
From that kind of deposit!
These times are not on hold,
For that kind of mind!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Wallflowers

Assimilated comfortability,
Can be yours routinely.
With dependable reliability,
With those alike who seek it.

But none of that is on this tray...
As an activity,
Offered today.

Those who wish to play,
Old geezers peeking easily out of windows...
Determined to dose,
Will not find too many...
Excitedly curling up their toes,
Thrilled.
Snap out of it!

Wallflowers hanging up their lives to age,
Are times that have rapidly moved away.
Get up, get with it and get active...
If you don't want to be among,
Those dismissed as if they haven't lived.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Walls Of Division

Responding self-righteously,
To what is perceived to be negativity...
While incapable to face facts.
Or refuse them to believe...
Is a destructive unproductive position to take,
Against a truth revealed and delivered to be received.

And for those who continue to oppose with defense,
Much pain is felt...
From the walls of division to fence themselves in.
With a doing to convince...
Building walls and fences for them makes sense.
Even though progress is stalled behind those walls.
Serving up a stalling of conflicts and nonsense.

'Wouldn't it be more practical not to build walls?
Or even walk around them.
And not beat your heads up against them at all?
Is it that important to you to appear victorious?
Wouldn't it be more cost effective,
If everyone started to use common sense.'

~We want it proven to our children,
Giving up is no badge of honor to flaunt.
And fearing the comments of opposition,
We do not wish this for our children to want.
We will not give up the struggle,
Nor turn our backs on the fight.~

'But...
Aren't you the ones building these walls of division?
And from where I see it to be viewed,
You are the ones with the dimming of 'lights'.
someone needs to replace the fuse.'

~We do what we must do.
With a doing done that shouldn't matter to you.~

'Not to build walls of division at all,
Would increase everyone's interest...
To provide realized purposeful benefits.'

~But what about our rights to be entitled?
No more would they be seen with envy and jealousy.~

~I hate to be the one to tell you this,
But...
No one who inflicts their own pain,
To do without proving there is a sharing of gains...
Is not one to be envied.
Sympathized? Perhaps. Envied? No.~

Walls of division to envision...
Escalates the advocating of one's hate.
Walls of division to envision...
Only perpetrates a mental illness to bait.
Although easier it is to just communicate.

Walls of division to envision...
May be built to maintain one's own pain.
Walls of division to envision...
May be built to isolate but what is the gain.
Walls of division to envision...
Keeps minds sick when their heads hit bricks.
Walls of division to envision...
Escalates the advocating of one's hate.
Walls of division to envision...
Keeps minds sick when their heads hit bricks.
Walls of division to envision...
May be built to maintain one's own pain.
Walls of division to envision...
Keeps minds sick when their heads hit bricks.
Walls of division to envision...
Keeps minds sick when their heads hit bricks.
Walls of division to envision...
May be built to maintain one's own pain.
And keeps minds sick when their heads hit bricks.

Walls They Continue To Bump Into

People will become,
More aggressive with necessary changes...
Long needed to have been made,
With a desperation to have them done...
When that time comes.

And they begin to recognize,
The walls they continue to bump into...
Is a result of closed eyes,
Open mouths...
And limited confined minds.

To then notice,
As if it has been a mystery...
After suffering from aches and pains,
How much is comprehended and gained...
By having the patience to listen.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
