My History.

Please put away your brush and your whitewash.
Please don't cover it or take it away.
Don't rewrite it with political floss;
the way for public opinion to sway
from the truth. Truth! Don't let it fade away.
We can try to learn from our history,
but only if we know the whole story.

We look to the past with a present lens.
Yet you feel something when you look at them.
How will you pass judgement on their actions?

History always repeats itself. It's like a cycle of life it could never be taken away but we can learn from it.....tweak it change it ever-so-slightly so that things will be better in our future. A very good poem.
