Backtrack Girl - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

a girl takes a train
but the train that she has taken
backtracks,
all she needs to do
to adopt to this mistake
is change her sitting position
going south is her actual
destination
but the train is going north now
there is no point
going down
she has more time left
for recreation
lots of landscapes to see
more sad events
to forget
and things now
are getting straight
and perfect

    When I lose focus on the present, distracted by the past, I'm neither moving forward or back because I'm trying to live in the present while thinking of the past. If I follow this girl's example, I may not arrive at my desired destination, but at least I'll be getting somewhere. (Report) Reply
