If The Past Has Come To Go - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

If the past has come to go,
As it has.
Why do so many,
Make attempts to hang onto it?
To debate in heated arguments,
Those treasured good times remembered...
When complaints exchanged,
Often remained the same.
And shared on a daily basis,
By the ones defending their pessimistic views.
With a doing of it and enjoying it too!

If the past has come to go,
As it has.
Why are those who had opportunities,
Observed to be heard to criticize...
The ones making sacrifices,
To better their lives.
Despite those who stood by,
Attacking their endeavors and efforts to try.
To then today not admit,
What was done to others provided no benefit.

And if the past has come to go,
As it has.
Why do so many hang onto it,
With wishes their devotion to ignorance...
Had a different approach with less commitment,
To beliefs that would stay 'and' allow it permitted...
To bestow upon those with such kept afflictions,
An advantage that progresses...
Without chasing delusions away.

If the past has come to go,
As it has.
Who amongst those unprepared to awaken,
Will await for their debates to end...
To realize too late,
Their priorities isolated have eliminate escapes.
And what they believe to remain forever is gone,
With a leaving them and their standards to value...
In a past to come to go,
As it has.
Like they have,
To be forgotten and determined insignificant...
By those who have found reality,
To discover and accept...
As a part of living their lives.
