Forgotten - Poem by Sam Edison

Shunned to the wilderness forgotten by all
Memories like a discarded photo album
The photo album that lies in a dusty cardboard box
The box in the basement unopened since it was placed

Stationed there on moving day nearly twenty years before
Buried underneath old magazines with words no longer read
Words that have long to be admired with any significance
The memories of a forgotten man

A man who might have been a hero to some
A friend, family, loved by those whose love he had earned
He lies in the cemetery buried for almost a century
Forgotten by time

His memories forgotten by all
I guess that they no longer exist
Maybe they never did
Oh what time has erased
Such a shame history could not consider us all
