My Past

My Past short poem

Photo by Hayleyisfree

I am often left wondering
couldn’t I have shaped my
life’s journey a better way

I try to recollect the path
by which I traversed in Life

I do the post mart em of
my actions and realise
the blunder i committed
all the way

I start brooding over the past
and cursing my self for the path
i chose to traverse

Path that i traversed seems to
have abruptly stopped and
I see myself hovering around at
the same spot without moving an inch

I fail to understand that I have one
more chance to go in right path
to reach my ultimate destination

I cut short my forward journey
feeling myself getting wounded
by my past mistakes

The wound gets worsened as I
brood more and more on my
past decisions

Finally I encounter the inevitable end
of my Life without moving an inch towards
reaching the ultimate Glory

Brooding over the past has Boomeranged
on my future and I quit the world
without being noticed even by my shadow
