Learn again

It is not easy to walk backwards

but I am doing it

my eyes are firmly focussed ahead

as I gingerly backtrack

with a singular mind to erase some egregious mistakes

pick and redo some important lessons

if I could bend backwards to please you

I can surely retrace my steps

to unlearn the pain

to nurture that spark which ignited my passion

and then start afresh to learn again.

  1. Love how the important lessons can help us look ahead and not feel the weight of regret. A poem that gives me some good direction. Walking backwards is like reflecting with our own pace. Wisdom and truth. So beautifully you.

  2. The mind is powerful enough to walk us backward as we move forward. It’s a great skill to have. Love how you’ve written this.
