Rearview Recall

By Leonard Pigg

What am I forgetting?
Those errant parts of my life
Undesirable elements
Genetic shortcomings beyond my control
Devils never make you do it
The unhealthy relationships
The fairweather friendships
Random acts of chaos
The ones who died
That made us cry
Images pounding retinas via media
The family that nurtured us
Came to the games and all the plays
The family that alienated us
Reminded us that we were never normal
Remember the faith you once had
The higher power that changed your life
The great letdown 
The lovers who decided forever had to end
