The Best of Times
Looking back I see
that the best of times were not
when I was looking behind or
looking forward but
when I wasn’t looking at all.
The times I was content
to co-exist with the past, present, and future,
no regrets, no expectations.
The times when time was not
an issue, a challenge, or an obstacle to be overcome.
The times when I wasn’t comparing
or rating the overall success of my current experiences,
so, in fact, the best times were never
really quantifiably measured to prove
they were the best.
But they were.
And they will be again.
One must always think that best days ate ahead of him/ her! It shall keep them moving with a hope in sight.
That’s the truth!
Spot on! All very true and beautifully expressed. I loved the optimism contained in the last two lines and the way you’ve set them apart to give the message power and impact. very skilfully done.
