Chances

Some chances are risky!
Some taken have no reward.
Chances risky and unrewarded...
Must be taken.
Taking a chance and failing
Still gains an experience.
Promising to take a chance...
And breaking that promise,
Will always be remembered.
That's why it is best not to take chances,
If you are the kind to break a promise!
Adventures will never find you pleased,
Or at ease...
Whatever the outcome!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  2798.     

Chances To Take

I can not live my life,
With my eyes affixed to the past.
I can not accept to walk on paths,
Manicured and already paved...
To believe in the doing I can re-create,
An undoing done to have it perceived...
I am innovative.

Chances to take are beset with mistakes.
And understanding why excuses to make,
Are made by those fearing their lives to live...
With reasons to give more time to waste.
While seeking easier ways,
That will convince them in the doing...
Others are impressed by their efforts.

For 'whatever' the reason I can not live my life,
With my eyes affixed to the past like that.
Nor can I accept to walk on paths covered by trash,
Although manicured and already paved....
With a collection of rubbish to interpret as progress.
There is 'something' in the doing of that much too relaxed,
Many have found easy to pick through as 'their' success.
And I prefer to receive the benefits from my own initiative.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Change

...and as if I didn't know,
What was involved with it.
Or what it took.
Or how it leaves...
To shake and unsettle.
To sit and establish a patience.
Eventually welcomed for what it is.
And the opposition that was there...
Upon its arrival,
Learns to slowly embrace it.
As if it was there all the time.
As if it had been part of what was!
But the scars remaining and fought over its coming...
Are not there to show on freshed faced generations!
Who could care less,
How change now rests!
Because...
Well,
Because they were not involved.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  2800.     

Change 'Premise' To 'Promise'

The premise is there,
Based upon certain assumptions...
To us given.
Although the promise to deliver,
What had been expected is missing...
It would be in our best interest,
To conclude our investigation to be complete.

'But to move forward on a premise,
Leaves what is needed left circumstantial.'

There are the same letters in the word 'premise',
As there are in 'promise'.
Exchange the 'e' for the 'o'...
And no one would ever know the difference,
If the evidence is based upon circumstances...
That concludes our investigation.
Or if assumptions accepted as proof was used.

'So...
No one would ever know,
The evidence we have collected...
Is actually inconclusive? '

Look...
No one here is attempting to prove,
We are scholars or rocket scientists.
Change 'premise' to 'promise' and that's it!
There is no need to be bogged down,
With specifics and details.
This is not that kind of case.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
