Unwritten Soul


Second Chances - Poem by Unwritten Soul

Again i saw the picture
Of past that remind me a smile
That miles me away from that time now
Again i am standing there
Wasting time to wish
Another chance if i would have
I would not ask for another

Never ending for a childish wish
Just if we could reverse our steps
To back where we have started
Before the road divided
I'll walk with you
Not to the another way
If i knew all from beginning
Where will my heart travel now
I would decide it to reach somewhere
Anywhere but no regret to haunt me
Because the story have changed now
Whenever the road divided
I was lost in the jungle

Time will never turn back
Just move on, have to go on
But childish wish never end
Maybe need a thousand years
Accepting what i could not change

Again i wasting time
Waiting for the sun to come
Make me ignored the night
I forget everything i have
Just lost in a dreaming wish
A wish for something I'll never had

The flame lighting on my face
I burned the picture with that forgotten smile
Let it be gone with the past
And I shall replace and framed the new ones
Framing a mirror and a blank picture
To reflect my present and remind the future
Because i don't have much time to regret
For something i will never had
Something i never had

Now I'm avoiding for another time
From losing the moment i am having now
And wishing it return me in years later
Enough with feeling that came haunted
Ghost of my past moment
Because of this wish
The second chances
My childish wish

My final chance is now
For something i will have
My dear soul
In unwritten journey
New moment to go

    I can relate to this poem so well. The past can pull us back so far that the present and future doesn't exist for us as we dwell on our regrets and mistakes. But the present is for living and to be happy where we are now, to enjoy the beauty of nature, the beat of music, a smile from a stranger, a new challenge and to embrace a new Dawn!
    Beautiful and heartfelt write!

    A beautiful poem expressing your feelings, though regretting and second chances are
    never like it was, as nothing stays the same, and we can only try to learn from our past,
    and hope for a better future, by learning from our mistakes and lessons in life. {{{hugs}}}

    We all deserve a second chance for we are only human and we all have made mistakes, we have to move forward with memories of the joy and pain of the past and to work through it all for a better and brighter future!
    Lovely write!
