Poetry: All You Need to See

By Monica C. Voskamp

Staring at the page

Lost by blotted lines

Lost in the journey

Lost in time.

If only we could

Turn back time.

If only we could

Change our minds.

If only we could

See things differently.

If only is not real

So sorry honey,

But face the facts

It’s time to move on.

Read the next line.

Leave yesterday’s world.

Write the next words.

Let go of the hurting.

You still have now.

Turn a new key.

Unlock a different door.

Travel a better road.

Create great memories.

You still have now

And this is all,

You really need to see.
