Having Experienced Life And Obstacles - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Wouldn't it be great to erase each moment,
We lived in the doing of making conscious mistakes!
Wouldn't it be great to erase those things said offensively,
With the intention to hurt...
Someone's feelings and create heartbreak.

Wouldn't it be great to have the taste of cake,
When so desired?

For those who wish this,
With their faces replaced as quickly as a grasping of a mask,
To pursue the doing of those tasks.
Those wishes dished as if magic...
Along with someone erasing pain from their memories,
Can be likened to observing a turtle removing its shell,
To Sun bathe on a beach and restricted for exclusive use.

Many will soon learn how living in this existence works!
In 'this' life lived here on Earth!

Doing unto others first,
Has its consequences!
And there is nothing like the presence of clarity.
Even with eyes closed,
Can be felt and seen.

To live each day respecting,
And being empathetic towards others...
Restricted from being given equal opportunities to express themselves.
Or coming to their aid with assistance to lend an ear to listen,
Is not a position of weakness.
Will come to affect those who believe they sit on higher pedestals.

Having experienced life and obstacles to overcome one's troubles,
Broadens the mind!
And heals wounds of all kinds.
Patience is awarded to those who grit their teeth.

And a faith kept in self reflection knowing it is best to respect others,
Has a way of gaining the attention from The Master.
The One and Only Most Divine...
With a returning of that,
Which had been enforced to ride on innocent backs...
To suddenly have a burden placed,
Upon those who believe this life afford them exits to escape...

A suffering comes to them to be done.
And it will not be complimented,
With the serving of hors d'œuvres!
Or valet service awaiting on call.
Not for those in the business of initiating conflict.
There is a shifting of a consciousness that comes.
There is a shifting of injustices to be done.
