Don'T Ask Me To Forget - Poem by Katleen D. Delgardo

I grew up with kiss and Led Zeplin
When Elvis was the king
And nobody owned a gun
We were fighting for world peace
Equality for one
Now we're fighting amongst ourselves
Why can't we all just get along.
Now you ask me to forget
I can't forget
The war gone by
The soldier's died
The baby's cry
The people's sigh
Jesus Christ
The sacrifice
The Kennedy's
Martin Luther King
Cause I had a dream
So don't ask me to forget
