Why look back?

Why look back

At the road that’s closed?

The barrier’s down,

You’re out of luck.

It’s a no-go zone,

It’s here you’re stuck.


Why look back

At the road once walked?

The should-haves, could-haves

Make no sense.

There’s nothing now,

But the present tense.


Why look back

At the road you took?

You’re who you are,

Through the steps you made.

You chose that route,

The price is paid.


Why look back

At the road to here?

The path to change

Is the one you’re on.

It might be hard,

Let’s hope it’s long.


For life is now,

Not yesterday.

You can’t go back.

You’re here to stay.

But you can choose

The next right turn,

And make it great,

Make those feet burn

Down the road to hope,

To love, to joy,

To fun and games,

Laughter ahoy!

To wonder, learning,

Rest and play.

Stop looking back,

Live life today!

About Juliet

I've just turned fifty, OMG ! I didn't realise I would have so much to say about this time of my life. The pure pleasure of writing has hit me hard and this blog is sheer self-indulgence. Enjoy!

    I really think your talent for writing is so interesting and it’s good to see in words what people know but rarely follow. Carpe diem!
