Lawrence S. Pertillar (February/'47 / Connecticut, USA)
In Discussions Of Yesterday
Whatever stops one from progessing,
To accept the various stages of life...
With a maturity that reflects self examination,
And let go to grow to experience each step,
As denials are set aside...
Is not a decision to make for one who breaks away,
To escape from delusions made...
That keeps a childish mind confined and feeling safe,
In discussions of yesterday with a proving to do as done.
