If I’d been looking back
to see where I had been
I probably would have stumbled on
So I’ll leave the past in the past.
It’s gone, and it’s done its part.
Whatever I need to remember
is already stored in my heart.
Eyes wide to the future, I step out
and leave the baggage behind.
I’m travelling lighter now-a-days
if only in my mind.
‘Stumbled on opportunities unseen’…….Magical start to the poem! Loved reading your poetry!
Thank you so much for your kind words. It’s really nice to hear which phrases or parts of a poem speak to the reader — helps to make me a better poet 🙂
Rightly said…..Who else other than a poet himself can understand that. 🙂
