Eras Passed

I can not depict those eras passed.
As if I wish to have them last.
Yesterdays gone,
Belong to someone else's future...
To envision an existence,
Not mine to attempt to glorify them lived.

Romanticized eras passed,
Some can't let them go.
Those romanticized eras passed,
Have put minds on hold.
In those eras passed already had,
Times then were so slow.
No one can compare them to today,
As remembered golden days.

What has been learned from eras passed?
When a quality of life has faded.
What has been learned from eras passed?
When a feeding on greed has many crazed.
What has been learned from eras passed?
When people are so divided.
With minds that are so misguided.

What has been learned from eras passed?
To prove respect has progressed.
What has been learned from eras passed?
To accept we're human beings.
And what has been learned from eras passed?
That's left us more reflective.
With minds used more effective.

What has been learned from eras passed?
That's left us more reflective.
With minds used more effective.
What has been learned from eras passed?
That's left us wisened up.
What has been learned from eras passed?
That's left us wisened up?

As eras pass not to last,
Have we wisened up?
As eras pass not to last,
Why are minds corrupt...
And abused.
As if to choose,
A mental confusion.
