"Where voice had failed
my pen prevailed
and like the winds, became a gale"

~Me


A history that is deep and vast;

into memories' clutch, those days were cast

when all went bitter and resentment grew fast,

but know, in truth, not all will last,

and what's happened has happened; the past is the past.

 

Friendship, slain, and now reborn

with gradual fading of mutual scorn;

the fabric of hatred now tattered and torn

while resentment lays abandoned. Forlorn.

The times have marked a brand new morn.

 

The flag of friendship no longer half mast;

history stays put. The past is the past.

@Patrick82432 This, I can relate to on every level. My gosh, Patrick, this made me think about my life. I sat for a good few minutes, engulfed in thought. Your work is unblemished by society - and it is pure, it is the pureness that lures me in and draws me to the next stanza. I am glad I read this, because like everything else you have written that I have read, it is fulfilling and I leave your poetry, feeling glad I came to read it.
