Many Yesterdays Gone - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Those who have aged,
To witness many yesterdays gone.
Better loved had been a past to reminisce,
When innocence was witnessed to live it.
And minor conflicts then,
We're quickly forgiven to find them romanticized.
My how time flies.

Today?
We live with hatred, bitterness and division.
Computerized by culprits disguised.
And difficult it will be,
To leave behind these evil times.
To find them loved, romanticized...
Or easy to forget and forgive.
When those of diseased minds spent their time,
Tormenting the World...
With crime, greed and more division to find.
As humanity is left dehumanized and undermined,
With it done by a few who seek darkness.
And an abyss to worship it as their home.
