When Times Like These Deceive

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

Which dreams are not worth me keeping?
And which ones left do I then pick?
Should I apply more focus and with emphasis?

Which ones should I minus to plus with more hope?
And which ones believed,
Am I guaranteed to receive?
When that boat I await towards me floats.

Even when times like these deceive,
Impossibilities I keep to reach...
Seem to me within my touch.
Even when times like these deceive,
I'm the one found seeking for 'my' reality...
From the truth others 'ditch' to fuss and cuss,
With a wish to enrich their delusions with tricks!
As if to promote with quotes,
A retrieving will come to be delivered and quick.

Which dreams are not worth me keeping?
And which ones left to pick,
Should I apply more focus and with emphasis?

Which ones should I minus to plus with more hope?
And which ones believed,
Am I guaranteed to receive?
If I patiently kept faith and got off my knees,
To make what I believe a possibility? !
