To Not Let A Past Go
Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar
When changes needed must be made,
Many will become offended.
Many will defend,
Their comfort with an ignorance to keep.
And an ignorance defended,
Many choose to defeat with unrest and protest...
As they take foolish steps to achieve it.
Without a movement that progresses forward.
And to not let a past go to repeat,
Or mention to reminisce to wish to relive it...
Shows that a greatness perceived to believe,
Has little evidence of it left to be seen.
Since eyes and minds are not focused,
With a consciousness that all things now existing...
Will not remain the same to stay that way.
Even for those who claim themselves 'Down-To-Earth'.
