After The Days Of February Have Gone

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

How can you justify,
The re-enactments of someone else's struggles
If you have not partaken in those sacrifices yourself?

To celebrate their tears and anguish,
Without researching their pain...
And those accomplishments,
That have gained your freedom
To do as you please
Is not justice left to enlighten or appease.

Forgetting to be greatful to people like these,
Who only wished to do you well.
When this 'spell' diminishes...
And after the days of February have gone!
Can you say you are completely pleased?
As you continue on singing songs out of tune.

Will you continue on awakening your mind?
Or are these times you celebrate,
Come as a reminder to you
Whatever contribution made,
To awaken others...
Is also historic?

Your steps laid,
Are just as concrete
To defeat misunderstandings,
Flourishing and encouraged!
