Sit down, I am here.
I have been here always.
I have watched Hitler and Stalin
And their downfalls begin.
I have watched leaders
Come and go.

Who am I?
You don't know?
Then let me show you.

I remember the Civil War, the Vietnam War,
The Persian Gulf and many more.
I watched the battles from day to day.

Wars have come and men have gone.
Leaders have lead and are no more.
But I am here, here at your door.
I will stay as you move on.
I will stay when you are gone.
For I am History, I am Time.

Eloise,
If only history could really speak, we would be alarmed at the truth, but even so, we should study it and remember from it.
This is a beautiful poem

Great piece Eloise!

 A soul that writes from the heart and shares it, truly gives a gift extraordinaire!
