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.
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,
Without expecting a 'payback'.
What's in the minds of people like that?
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.
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.
Would you happen to have any tissue?
I've become suddenly overwhelmed.'
