THE PAST
Liam hopson Oct 2018
LETS ALL STOP DWELLING ON THE PAST
WHATS DONE IS DONE
THAT TIME IN LIFE HAS ALREADY PASSED
TRY TO FORGET IF YOU FAILED
TRY TO FORGET IF YOU WERE OUTCLASSED
REMAINING IN THE PAST
WILL ONLY MAKE YOU FEEL LIKE AN OUTCAST

ITS TOMORROW WHERE YOUR FUTURE CHANGES
FORGET THOSE STUPID ARGUMENTS
FORGET THOSE STUPID EXCHANGES
REMEMBER THAT YOUR THINKING CHANGES
REMEMBER THAT POSITIVE THINKING REARRANGES

GOD HAS HAD ENOUGH OF THESE SECTARIAN WARS
ILLWILL IN THE PAST IS ALWAYS THE CAUSE
LETS JUST STOP TO THINK
LETS JUST STOP AND PAUSE
LETS REARRANGE THESE STUPID LAWS
ONLY THEN
WILL WE BE WORTHY
OF GODS APPLAUSE
Butch Decatoria Nov 2019
Tiny seasons of indifference
Become ******* cyclones
The situation of change
Climates climbing
Clawing at our calm..
Are we creating
the bubble itself or
Just in it,
Beneath or above it?
Are we in someone else's
Situation?
Polluted with illwill
Mass & school shootings
The south is drowning in the sink
California is ablaze
More & more displaced,
Insurance can't cover that
Unkind of loss!
Can't be present unless...
A victim of their fifteen minutes.
We all are suffocating
In due time
Situations change
Life must live
Situations being gifts
We are free
To change
Our situations...
***!
Are we free, unable to change?

i met the aging father of an ex-friend in a park.
he had a large bicycle with him

they were always riding bicycles, the whole family.
healthy living. watching less tv. reading more books. doing sports.
he was sitting on a bench
i had recognized him- and in spirit of better days and holding no
illwill,i approached .
we got to talking
and it got to why his son and i had drifted apart all those years ago
i don't think he ever knew the whole story.
i replied with nothing too specific
but later thought about it more .
i decided that
he got tired of the loser's table and i was still content for a bit longer
and yet, to this day, i have never thrown someone’s fish out the bus

window .

— The End —
