Walking Backwards – 4th September 2021

Where are you headed, young lady?
Doomed to repeat mistakes
You’re only paying attention
To one’s your mother makes
Can’t see what’s in your future
Cos the present hurts so much
You’re endlessly running towards
The first thing you can touch
Holding on to another’s dreams
Thinking that’s where to go
Walking backwards into disasters
Comforting for you to know
Waking up in a hundred years
Realising what you’ve done
Close your eyes one last time
With a peace to be at one

Let me know your thoughts
