What Goes On As Witnessed - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

It is easier to see,
The same things done...
By the same people doing them,
Over and over again.
With nothing achieved,
Or accomplishments completed...
As seen from a distance.
And with thoughts reminisced.

And upon one's return,
From travels sojourned...
No matter what the length of time,
With an experiencing of life and lessons learned.
What goes on as witnessed,
Gets even easier to ignore unlike what was viewed...
At a time before.
But gone is the attachment,
With a showing of indifference.
