No Reverence for Remembrance

We revere the veneer of history. Why?

We know it’s not really what’s gone by.

We know it’s been whitewashed by victors.

Wanting the poor & colored living even stricter.

Though we know that History has two sides.

Which side you’re on by two things is tried.

Either you see the truth 20/20 in hindsight…

Or use your moral compass & hope your choice was right.

So many events & people are ignorantly lost to time.

Wrong color &/or wrong gender so history never dropped a dime.

This is the way it’s always been & I fear will be much longer.

But many have gotten a first look at their compass; making the movement that much stronger.

I hope for once that we find ourselves on the right side of right.

Else we’ll find that we are in for one long hell of a fight.

Just to get the facts right.

I see the world through a Painter’s eyes and process it with a Poet's's quite a harsh place for the soul. It scratches and wears your true self down, at times, but the Beauty is Addictive. I feel for everyone I encounter. Everyone I encounter is a teacher if I'll let them be. I Empathize with everyone I talk to & I Think about Everything-LEVi
