Fight the Future of the Past #Poetry

Dear myself

keep the past where it belongs
for sometimes it will come up to you in the present
and try to be in your future

but it belongs in the foregone
those times and memories
are gone, dead, finished, no more

fight for your future!
the one where you end up happy
defy that future where the past wins

as all that is gone is gunning for the future
the tomorrow where you end up with the dead
that past that is gone, dead, finished, no more

fight the future of the past!

  1. this is true, but it’s a balancing act, i think, because, if you’re anything like me, the forest of the past is where i cut the wood for the poetic wickermen i raze in the present. they are effigies of a past life sacrificed for the future.
