History's meaning

Poetry By: Mary Jo
Young adult

About why you have to learn history

Faces of past

Faces that never seem to last.

Actions and words

And words that go unheard.

Memories of life

And of pain so suffice.

Time will never end

Nor will there ever be a few seconds to lend.

Every minute of every day

Weather you stand or lay.

Every minute counts

Not even one discounts.

History is everything

And all of nothing.

If we do not learn it

The we must be a dit-whit.

Because we are doomed to repeat it

Without any whit.

History is meant to be

Learned because it is a need.

Faces of past

Will only last

If we know.
