Retracing and Rewinding

Written in 2015, not submitted to any grading board.

Retrace your steps to recover –
turn around on your path, disrupt the dirt road.
turn around, turn around or find another.

Lost things may be found in dark corners,
but remember how dust and dark deny you definition.

Consider the lost hours:  you’ve turned, retraced –
And more time’s wasted.

Consider lost memory: thinking, photos, reminiscing –
think of all you’re missing.

Consider lost people: wonder, wonder ever wonder at the cost –
wonder wonder if they knew they were lost

Consider lost you –

Stop retracing, stop rethinking.
Deny dark corners new toys
Let lost things stay lost

If you can stop your mind– stop the rewind to things you’ll never find.
