Doing Something On Their Own

I can find the restrooms in my home,
Blindfolded.
There are two.
And I know what to do and how to use both,
For purposes to address an agenda.
I do not need a tour guide,
To make clear my familiarity.
Some have a need to have their hands held,
During a repeated process.
To feel a comfort in this repeating...
Something they do is correct.
And does not offend...
If they should be caught alone,
And doing something on their own
That may not be condoned or accepted.
Hoping that what is done...
Is approved by everyone!
Even if what they do,
Captures no one's attention.
With or without...
Making attempts to apply imagination.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  2798.     

Doing That Is Rude

You know better than I do,
What it is you want and perceive as a need.
But please...
Do not expect me to limit my desires,
To bring into my life to prioritize...
Your indecision.

'I'm not undecided.
I just don't know what it is that I want.'

Dear God...
WHY?

'There is no reason to involve God.
Give me a few minutes and I can tell you.'

Dear God...
Wasn't it just yesterday,
I promised to never again take medication?

'Why have you stopped talking to me.
You act as if I am invisible.
I'm not.
And doing that is rude.'

Dear God...
Is there any way YOU can inflict upon me,
Some kind of a coma?
Or perhaps an immediate amnesia?
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Doing The Best They Can

The hardest thing people are finding,
Almost impossible for them to face today...
Is a truth they can not manipulate,
Or take the credit for its creation.
And many who have not yet lost their minds,
Are doing the best they can...
To live their lives with those lies they have told.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  2800.     

Doing Their Best To Achieve

What advice would you give,
To anyone seeking with a wish...
To become successful.

'That's a difficult question.
I really don't know.
And advice?
I am no authority to be giving advice,
To anyone.'

Okay.
What would you say about those,
Who have given their support...
To the ones who do become successful.

'Few people know,
From the beginning who will become successful.
However...
I will say this,
It depends on the enviorment one lives in.

If one hears over and over again,
That they need to leave an enviornment...
In which people are not accustomed,
To those wishing to achieve success...
There will be many people there believing themselves,
Limited in mind and insecure.

And many will berate anyone choosing to think...
They can do something else with their lives,
Than wasting their time talking about others...
Doing their best to achieve.

And achievement takes work, discipline, devotion and sacrifice.
With a getting of very little sleep,
Those unaware would never accept to believe.'

Do you believe you are successful?

'Extremely.
I was born with the ability to ignore naysayers.
Especially those hiding their insecurities,
To make excuses to dump their self hatred on others.
And people like that I have known all my life.'
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
