Blissfulness - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

As I watch beliefs you hold,
Crumble and fall.
It saddens me to know,
Your madness stored
Continues to show!

Let go of limitations!
Let go of situations!
Let go of contemplations...
That keep you stalled and undernourished!

As I observe you praying for release from 'sins'...
I think to myself,
'How did these fears begin? '
Hypocrisies committed is all I see,
By those entrusted but dismiss honesty!

As I watch beliefs you hold,
Crumble and fall.
It saddens me to know,
Your madness stored
Continues to show!

A growth and appreciation of self has gone!
As you carry on looking hopeless and forelorn!
And all that needs to be done,
Is an opening of your eyes!
Cease fulfilling your life with alibis...
Shared without vision with those who lie.

Let go of limitations!
Let go of situations!
Let go of contemplations...
That keep you stalled and undernourished!

What do you believe will encourage you to flourish?
Without 'things' to feed,
Temporary desires bleeding your needs!
This is not pleasing to you at all!
Shopping for enlightenment,
Can not be found in crowded malls!
Tempting with teases to empty your pockets!
Leaving you to remorse habits you can drop...
By stopping it!

Let go of limitations!
Let go of situations!
Let go of contemplations...
That keep you stalled and undernourished!

Disperse with this...
For a happier existence that can exist!
Connect you must,
To your 'higher self'.
There is magic when you discover,
Your own blissfulness to trust!

Let go of limitations!
Let go of situations!
Let go of contemplations...
That keep you stalled and undernourished!
Connect you must,
To your 'higher self'.
There is magic when you discover,
Your own blissfulness to trust!

Stay Blissed!
