Poetry: Valley of the Past

Updated on April 4, 2016
What lies on the tracks of your past?
What lies on the tracks of your past? | Source

What is the past?

Is it childhood, or youth, or one's sweetheart last?

Of winters passed and layers of dust?

Or of secrets beneath the rust?

Is it a jar of morning dew?

When love was enough to carry you through?

When having faith was easy to do?

When dreams were dreams to come true?

Was it a time of a different you?

When your eyes held a different view?

When you thought chances came in twos?

When you played the game of rules?

Was it a time of tragic fun?

And a show you always needed to hone?

Was it either a win or lose, no in-betweens?

Of conscience flown and drawing-ins?

Was it for the ghosts and haunted deeds?

For the I-love-you's said and unread?

For points proven and things done?

That you throw your past to the but returning wind?
