Going backwards

Going forward is

as natural as

being human,

and feeling the life now

and looking to

the road that wides ahead

to the horizon.

 

Going backwards

is awkward

and can lead

to a fall,

a tripping over

one’s self

and the memories

that hold you down;

unless, of course, you

turn full around and

only look back,

only see the

pain that is behind.
