Living in the Past

Contributed by softerware on Sunday, 25th June 2017 @ 05:39:23 PM in AEST
Topic: anguished

Compelled to heal as we may be;
We cannot change our history;

Like puppets to a distant thunder;
Dancing while it pulls us under;

Turning rainbows ashen gray;
Hijacked by our yesterday.

I should bring this to an AA meeting. I/'/ll tell them I wrote it.

Just kidding. Never.

But, I will bring it. It/'/s brilliant in its simplicity.

So true.... As we fade away we search for the light....

Poetry is much like a great photo, a single "moment in time" capturing many feelings and emotions. Yet, they are very alive; creating stirrings within the readers who form visual "pictures" of the expressed emotions within the Poem. ©
