The Past... - Poem by Eric Cockrell

as long as we
pretend the past didnt happen,
and hide it from ourselves,
and our children...
we learn nothing!

one form of slavery and prejudice
to another... one wrong war
to another... the cycle continues.

the mistakes we've made
are rungs on the ladder,
the ladder we use to
climb up out of the mire!

dont hide the scars,
each tells a story!
the story of a people
striving to be human!

    A lot of people do hide the truth, only
    for it to come out years later. A great poem.
