Choosing To Have Amnesia
Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar
Believing that an escape,
Eliminates what has chased...
To now be ignored to stay,
Left behind where one thinks...
Will remain that way.
To leave one to live a life re-invigorated,
Fresh and rejuvenated.
As if the past has been from one's mind erased.
Is as foolish as choosing to have amnesia.
Even though there are many,
Who do have selective memories.
