The It Of It - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Each day to experience the it of it.
Should be enough for anyone,
To find the time in wonderment.
Not spending it revisiting,
A past that has run out of gas.
To reminisce momentarily,
Is something most do but do not stay.
With a choosing to move on.
Unlike many with their druthers,
Who seem to wish...
Their days to come could be delayed.

Each day to experience is a blessing to get.
And a miracle to witness bestowed.
Yet some think this gift they are given,
Gives them reason to complain.
About a past they relive.
For them that remains the same.
To then be heard being upset.
If the it of it changes.
And they chose to stay unprepared for it.
