Talking with shadows,
to pass stagnant time.
Feeling so hollow,
inner voices chime.
“Be present today,
push the past away,
what the mind replays,
So hard to swallow
pain that sticks like grime,
simple to wallow
in an endless climb.
” Push past yesterday,
or the old will stay,
leave all where it lays,
heal and feel okay.“
hope all is sublime,
choosing to follow,
a future so prime.
” Life will often sway,
and carry dismay,
enjoy the sun rays,
smiling past each day.“
– Grace Y. Estevez – Reddy
Thank you, Grace, for this cleverly presented, beautiful and wise poem.
Glad you liked it, Joanna. Thanks so very much.💕
The past is the non-existent home of regret. You advise, I think, not to concentrate on what might have never been as that will merely choke what is. There is wisdom in that.
Absolutely. Thanks so much.💕💕💕
The moment is so difficult to hold onto but I guess that’s not the point – it changes as we do, we just have to keep time with it – like a partner in a dance.
Love the way you put that. So true. Thanks so much.💕
Ah, you put it all so elegantly. We must indeed keep coming ahead.
