Trying To Be As Serious As I Possibly Can - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

I'm not going to say,
What goes around comes around.
I can not do that.
I am just going to feel very blessed.

And...
Find a place to laugh where I am not heard.
With the acknowledgement God realizes,
I am a work in progress with blemishes and flaws.
Just like other 'creations' My Father has made.

And I am not quite yet prepared...
To forgive those who have done misdeeds,
Intentionally!
Without expecting a 'payback'.

What's in the minds of people like that?
Donut munching?

But something inside me becomes pleased,
To see them suffer.

'Oh forgive me Father,
For I have sinned.
And it felt so good! '

God knows I am going through this process,
Trying to be as serious as I possibly can.
Under certain conditions.
Afterall...
Like Father, Like Son!
I had to have gotten my sense of humor from 'somewhere'!
So I can not take full responsibility for my tactless actions.

'Excuse me,
Would you happen to have any tissue?
I've become suddenly overwhelmed.'
