week 674 ~ step softly on the past

with 2 comments

step softly on the past
for as you walk ahead
you balance on the last

true thing you touched don’t blast
the memories instead
step softly on the past

you need it for ballast
to mitigate your dread
you balance on the last

teetering you’ve amassed
the will to grasp a thread
step softly on the past

that book of stories passed
on passed by all pleas pled
you balance on the last

adventure dreams forecast
answers that haven’t fled
step softly on the past
you balance on the last
