Without Insisting To Assist - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Keeping faith takes getting closer,
To oneself to accept.
Although so many who say they have faith,
Have yet to allow this 'awakening' to happen.
With a following to look forward.
And leave behind yesterday's steps to correct,
Those made mistakes regretted to upset.

Receiving experience and wisdom to get,
Takes a leaving behind...
What was done to define a past that has gone.
With an understanding to comprehend 'then',
Those lessons learned to teach children.
And hope with 'faith' lessons taught to 'them',
Are learned and not needed to be repeated again.

'We all are victims of our own committed sins.'

So many still unforgiving and living not to forget,
Childish attitudes refusing to grow to let them go.
With a keeping kept expectations that a faith to claim,
Without devotion bestows upon everyone the same...
Wisdom that rewards one going through the motions.
But anyone accepting their faith and steps to move on,
Into the unknown has already been shown...
That a growing to know onself to do alone,
Makes it easier to let GOD do the judging.

'We all are victims of our own committed sins.'

If a faith to claim has been tested to keep real,
Living a life without insisting to assist GOD...
Connects more effectively.
With this unheard or needing to be expressed,
From one who knows it best...
That such a doing to make claims...
As if to 'exclaim' of a faith that exists,
Does not show to expose they contradict...
By misdeeds more believed to see than faith.

'We all are victims of our own committed sins.
Even if some try to convince they've done none.
With a pointing of their fingers at others to do,
Faithfully.'
