Today we present the poem “A Man Who Forgot: A Warning for the Present Age” by Pen Wordsmith. She wrote this poem to emphasize the danger of erasing our past and refusing to learn from mistakes.
Once was a man who tried to leave behind,
All the things from where he’d come.
But sadly he found though forgotten in mind,
The things of the past cannot be undone.
And so doomed was he to repeat past sins,
To suffer again and again.
For time repeats lessons mankind has forgone,
Though it’d hoped to have taught them then.
