Past Revisited

Past Revisited

Past revisited once again
Hoping for others’ lives to mend
Ships sail on, broken, sails frayed
Frothy backwash is what remains
Sadly seen are the facts
One to another responsibility lacks
Power struggles continue on
Same ‘ole vicious cycle trod upon
Each adult, the game in play
Unbeknownst, young’uns pay
Generations names are lost
Is it really worth the cost?
Ashes where others slept
Goals unattained, mind bereft
Borrowed lies still today
Demons never slain
Waiting to see the mighty fall
Wrecked and battered, pray for all.

About Dawn Marie DiMartino

I had lived most of my youth in New York, but have been a native of Florida for over 20+ years. I am recently divorced, a mother of 2 adult children and I am a retired analyst. My passion for writing and drawing started at a very early age. I have continued through my adult life taking a pen to hand and compiling my innermost thoughts, feelings and expressions on paper. My writing and drawing keep me in a calming frame of mind when I am putting it all down. Some/Most of my writings can tell you about my personal story. I have published 4 poetry books, 5 children's books, and have been involved in 4 anthologies.
