A Haiku - Problems

Updated on February 23, 2015

A careless word has eternal echoes.

Source

Irreversible choices....


Problems come and go,

Some leave our hearts still aching.

Why? I do not know.


Wise choice is made how?

The worst are of our making.

False choices then....now.


Life? Once me and you.

So make choices wisely now.

Love demands we do.


The chance to change....gone.

The final act unforeseen,

A day with no dawn.


Impulse can betray.

Like footsteps in deep darkness,

Stumbling on today.

      jhamann: Sometimes we are seemingly just guessing where that next step will take us, while regreting each stumble along the way. Thanks.

      These are some very powerful Haiku stanzas. The last stanza seems to stick with me. Thank you for sharing. Jamie

      roll your tongue 10 times before speaking, while reminding yourself that "sometimes the best answer is silence."

      This poem spoke to me on many levels... sometimes we don't even know that we made a choice at all...

      Problems come and go,

      Some leave our hearts still aching.

      Why? I do not know

      Beautiful, loved it. sharing.
