Living In Past - Poem by Ashek Sarker

People say-life moves on so
look forward
Never hold on to old grudges
forget the past
Life is too short and
chances fewer
Memories die fast
nothing lasts forever
When everything falls apart
and bound to decay
Why should man on earth
sorrow over past days
Alas! living on my ruins I
can hardly make sense
Which one my past and
which is present.

Topic(s) of this poem: sadness

    Such a compelling poem, it's rhythm was like a rushing river heading towards the ocean, it took my breath away. Then the last two lines brought me up abruptly, causing me to catch my breath and ponder the truth of what you said. Really great poem, I got a lot out of it! Thank you for sharing it.
