To Realize Times Are Gone - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

There needs to be...
Changes made not delayed.
And...
There needs to be...
Reality faced everyday,
To not dress up to eliminate...
A truth that's here to stay.

There is a need...
To let go a past that ended.
But many are still holding on,
Refusing to remove their grips.
And...
With a stubbornness they can't resist.

Many people find it hard,
To move on.
And...
Many people find it hard,
To realize times are gone.
And...
Many people can't accept,
What 'was' doesn't last forever.
Refuse they do to live the truth,
That a 'was' wont return again.

There is a need...
To let go a past that ended.
There needs to be...
Changes made not delayed.
And...
There needs to be...
Reality faced everyday,
To not dress up to eliminate...
A truth that's here to stay.

Many people can't accept,
What 'was' has gone forever.
And...
Many people are upset,
Their demands are a fantasy.
And...
Disappointed they become,
That a truth is meant to be...
That change!
That came.
And is.

Many people can't accept,
That change!
That came.
And is.

Many people can't accept,
To realize times lived are gone.
And...
Many people can't accept,
To realize times are gone.
And they,
Like those times...
Must move on.
