Forever Cemented - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
The removal and taking away,
Of one's experience...
May be successfully performed,
In a scientific clinic.
Some may have those experiences,
Amnesia could not erase.
These experiences are deeply implanted.
Like the Earth spinning slowly,
In a protective Universe.
Some things people are forced to deal with.
And this enhancement is forever cemented,
To never be forgotten.
As if compassion has them knotted.
And a recollection is felt,
With every nuance of what has been inflicted.
Whether bitter or sweetened by the memory of it.
People prolong what they take for granted.
And for too long they can not see this is wrong.
Until a 'too late' comes!
To then find them and those times forgotten,
Like a Sunrise witnessed but soon gone.
