Repeated Visits To Resucitate A Past - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

It has taken them with determination,
To prove together they could defeat him.
Or anyone with wishes to experience,
All that which tomorrow promises.

And they will spend years in the doing of this,
To convince themselves...
Their ambitions are praised,
Each moment a step ahead is delayed.

But there is one obstacle that remains in their way...
And that's a kept stupidity they wish others to believe,
That their misdeeds will keep followers...
Who are equally deceived by kept thoughts that progress,
Can be successfully obtained if one remains limited...
By attempts to walk backward with repeated visits,
To resucitate a past to revive that has long passed on.
