We can keep looking back
You know that back tracking
Where there was once happiness
Filled with gladness
Filled with love and devotion
Filled with love and hope
Filled with clarity
And not charity
We keep looking back
At the unhappiness
It’s all down to us!
We ride the bus
Or take the train
Without the strain
We all have choices!
If only we listened to our own voices
The back tracking has no gain
When there has been so much pain
Have you and I dealt with it?
Sorted it out in my minds?
Have we done and dusted it?
So that life goes on
That must go on!
Letting go of the weight
So that we can walk through that gate
Is your choice so admissibly, acceptable?
If so why look backwards
When all we need to do is look forwards
The backwards so sepia
Not colourful
Yet colourful
If has been filled with long held dreams
Strange as it may seem
Yet so seemingly clear
That we held so dear
The looking back at times held no hope
Yet there was a glimmer, a shimmer
But we needed to look forward
That is where the real hope lays
It brings better days
We all have choices
Where there is love and adornment
Love that brings us enjoyment
In those precious moments
The past has gone
Long gone
Maybe just maybe
Hang onto those past precious moments
So what are your choices today?
