You Can Try! But Why?

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

Don't prolong that which has gone,
With a wanting to replace it.
To substitute it for something else.
Nothing can beat what has already been done,
Whether to accept or refuse.
Moving on to not repeat to leave it as is,
Eliminates a need to use excuses.

As if in the doing of this,
Makes what has been done to do disappear.
Like many people who wish,
Those who make excuses do.

Don't prolong that which has gone,
With a wanting to replace it.
You can't.
You can try!
But why?

To substitute it for something else you can try but why? nice question that is thought proving and nice answer too given. Replacement of personality is only required to understand thoughts of reality about life. Nicely penned.
Very interesting and it should be the philosophy of life.gone means gone why we try to replace or search for a substitute..life is not a machine break down and change..life is beyond that..we suffer or most of us is suffering with this act- that's the fact- Eliminates a need to use excuses. i love this line- this is to stand with pride, we must accept..and go ahead..living is not replacing..nice one Thank you
