Poetry

Look back, in glory or shame.


Looking back in time, often we pause
To think and to contemplate,
Things we can’t carry ahead with us;

Looking back in time, often we pause
To relieve memories,
That come flooding and yet leave us dry;

Looking back in time, often we pause
To poke our own conscience,
For mistakes we couldn’t help but commit;

Looking back in time, often we pause
To laugh at past tears,
Which had then made us numb.

Looking back in time, often I pause
To look, for an excuse,
For a reason, not to look back anymore.
