Go Back (poem)

Updated on June 15, 2013

Go back to where you started on your quest

And search the endless sands for reason why

Draw back the veils and put the truth to test

The answer for the tears across the sky


What sadness now romances with pure Joy

An echo of a shadow has returned

And with a heart devoted does it toy

Till memories once golden are all burned


Go back across that now vast make-believe

For seasons flavored the once long ago

Go back across the path one’s dreams may weave

For sometimes hidden mists begin to show


And when we find the person we now live

Just look inside the mirror and forgive

      Very powerful and insightful poem. Look at ourselves in the mirror is sometimes the answer. Very poignant and tender in forgiving oneself.

      Martin, this is a very profound message. Once we see ourselves as the common factor in certain circumstances in our lives, we need to face it and forgive ourselves in order to move on.

      There is an aching sadness to your words.

      If we could 'go back' would we recognize exactly what we would need to change?
