With These Stories And Others To Come

With these stories and more...
A forgetting is not permitted!

With these stories and others to come...
A repeating will be committed.

Moving ahead for some is certain.
Many like to Spring clean,
And exchange all the curtains.

Some prefer to ignore the dust.
And oxidize they do...
Rusting and cursing,
The stagnant times they trust.

Others see this with wishes to move on!
With each day turning into night...
They await the coming of dawn.
But those who choose to argue about change...
Do the best they can,
To remain the same!
Claiming that yesterday,
Their lives were less insane!

With these stories and more...
A forgetting is not permitted!

With these stories and others to come...
A repeating will be committed.

And with the troubles today,
Existing unresisted.
Many believe good times will return.
If only they sit,
Reminiscing about it!

While everything around them,
Is left to crumble...
As praises of days gone,
Leaves those currently outraged...
In a blazing that comes,
To burn them all.
And standing to witness,
They do...
The approaching creep of a firestorm.

Without a prevention...
To stop an accepted ignorance,
Allowed as they debate their fate!
