Lawrence S. Pertillar (February/'47 / Connecticut, USA)
Payback For a Life They Chose
No one ever forgets,
The attacks upon them done.
No one ever does.
And that pain is never overcomed.
To forgive and forget are just statements made.
A resentment is kept,
With a temperment masqueraded...
By an award winning charade.
If someone has something valued,
Taken away from them...
There is a revenge hidden within.
And those of evil deeds who take life for granted...
Are going to one day be reminded,
The road they believed easily traveled...
Will for them come to an abrupt close!
As payback for a life they chose!
