Poem: Not Looking

Mistakes from the past can be haunting and one can be covered by so many choices that drive them mad or into depression.  Learn from the past, don’t dwell and don’t keep repeating.  Don’t throw yourself into the flames again.

Not Looking

Plenty of ruin to reflect upon

mistakes flank your every move

afraid to reflect; afraid to breathe

lest you stretch the pain and slip

finally throw yourself into the flame

-Poem by Justin Germino
