If Their Knees Stayed Glued - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

The ones coming to face,
Insurmountable dilemmas...
Replacing misdeeds they seeded to place,
On paths of others...
They chose to debase and humiliate,
In secret and deceiving ways.
To believe they could do,
And walk away unscathed.
Free to live their lives fantasized!
Will come one day to realize...
Lieing on others and from them trying to hide,
Is not wise when truth does not end its pursuit...
To return to them with a vengeance done,
They could not defend themselves from it...
If their knees stayed glued to church pews.
And not with a heartfelt sincerity.
But...
With hopes to prevent,
Negativity of their invested interests intended...
From a stopping of dumping on them to deposit,
All the trash and garbage they meant to send.
Done to do right back on them!
Even with their best portrayal of kept denials.

'WHY?
Why is all of this happening,
To me? '

~Who knows?
Maybe God has you mistaken for someone else.
Have you bothered to ask Him? ~

'I have.
When I can find the time like today I have found.
Some Sundays I do go to church and pray.
After I buy something new to wear.'

~Then perhaps your asking,
Masquerades a fear of removing your pretense.
I've heard it said,
God is All-Knowing and Omni-present.
Maybe you should try being more...
Convincing.~

'Maybe you should 'try',
The minding of your own business.
My relationship with God is 'unique'.
You don't know me.'
