Verbalism - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

There is nothing about a yesterday lived,
That can be done to redo to correct...
With a reliving that satisfies,
More than the content of the time given.
It has happened to go attached to a past.

Just like the start of this verbalism,
Using words as if they were more imortant...
Than the realities they represent,
That began from a beginning...
To end with closure.
