Flawed Recollection


Today becomes abstract

as it is archived in the pages of history

Destined to join the annals of long ago

How much time must pass before

the present becomes the past

And flawed memories validate misrepresentation

Quandaries and dilemmas

so important in the here and now

somehow become vague memories, inconsequential

Solutions and agendas insistently employed

start ripples of change that touch future days

accepted, unchallenged, unsupported

Black and white photographs

tell the story from the viewer’s perspective

Colored by his own experience

If mistakes are not to be repeated

Each must bear witness to

the lessons from yesterday
