Look Not Behind

Look ahead in life,

and not behind.

Though the soul,

with its yearning,

can at will,

transport back in time.

Thus brings comfort,

or bring pain.

Really though,

what is gained?

In reflection,

beauty known from our youth,

Telling our story,

Telling the truth.

It can also be as if a monster,

chasing resolution.

Attacking this tender soul,

for the answers to know.

The complex and discreet

does this past choose to greet.

So turn the  mind,

straight ahead,

and of the past depart,

despite the longings from the heart.

The future is calling,

giving birth,

to a brand new start!
