Trivia And Those Tripping Over It - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

I'm not one to trip over anything to keep it repeated.
Some trip and want it to be revisited.
As if in the doing,
A remembering of it...
Satisfies a preoccupation of a score to settle.
While basking in the glow of immaturity.

And self inflicting wounds...
Usually occurs between kids bumping into each other,
While at play.
To consciously do it to oneself is not mentally healthy.
Especially if some of those playmates have aged,
With the leaving behind of trivia and those tripping over it...
To explore a more broadened aspect of a life,
Rapidly in change mode.
