    Let's change history
    make truth a mystery
    even though you really know
    how the wind doth blow

    It rained, it poured
    flood waters rose with great power
    But you say, it wasn't so bad
    it was just a brief shower

    Trying to compare apples and oranges
    Juicy pulp made your mouth quite sore
    Bit all the way to the center of that orange
    only to find your teeth inside an apple core

    Said you picked a perfect rose
    but it was more like a Venus flytrap
    Sweet flower turned carnivorous
    with a bite that hurt like crap

    Trying to rewrite history
    Putting a better face on it
    Turning reality into a mystery
    Truth remains, but barely a trace of it.

    Some history is painful
    It can hurt to remember what really occurred
    But history can't truly be rewritten
    and to believe it can is really absurd
    You can't actually change the deed
    Even if you rewrite each and every word

    yes

    the future is not promised
    the present you deal with the nonsense

    and the past gets it all honest

    you can rewrite it

    but people will know and remember the truth

    if there are people who can dispute it

    i love it

    great great piece sista what yo name is

    Yes, some people will know the truth if there are people who'll dispute it. Failing that, sometimes only you will know the truth. Thank you much So'ja, lol@ what yo name is...smh.

    Hello watz:
    Now this is some real talk.
    Oh how we wish we could but the best
    thing is to move on and take something
    from it. Very nice write.

    Much Luv

    Great and interesting piece.
    Wouldn't it be a great thing to change history...even for a minute, ...I know we can't, cause what it is ...it is!
    So, the next best thing is to "Not forget" ...and change what "Was/Is" ...altho we can't change it, ...but we can surely make a change.
    wonderful work of art poet!

    Queent, we can't change the past, but perhaps expereinces can help us mold the future. Thank you sis.
