Remembered In Retrospect - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
There is no better voice heard,
Than the one remembered in retrospect.
That one voice spoken at a time avoided to reject.
But comes around again with a wanted wish to listen.
Since what had then been said,
Has left a profound affect on those who 'now' hear...
With a clarity reminisced in heads less distanced.
As limits within then lived and frequently visited,
Have disappeared to open wide eyes and unblocked ears.
To reveal a truth of evidence never embellished.
And as fresh as it ever was or could have ever been,
For anyone seeking a desire to comprehend.
Knowing a process of listening 'first' has to begin,
To achieve understanding a having of patience can command.
No patience to listen,
No comprehension to get,
No understanding is given.
No understanding received,
No listening has been invested.
And without patience or listening invested,
Leaves no benefit to reminisce even if remembered in retrospect.
