Forward and Back. A Poem #Prose4T

Forward and Back

What lies ahead is a mystery
Whereas you know your history
The future, it is yours for the making
Whilst what has been, there is no faking

When writing the next part of your book
Reflect on the past, take a good look
In what is to come, you can raise the stakes
But you really must learn from your mistakes

As soon as you start your new project
Remember lessons learned have an affect
The future, it will be exciting and new
But the past, it will always stay with you

So always look forward to what is to come
A new day arrives with the rising sun
But take a look back and never forget
There is also beauty in any sunset

    Love this, such true words. I’m not a believer in regrets, but I do believe in using the past to inform the future, which you have expressed beautifully here. Thank you so much for sharing with #ThePrompt x

    I really love the ending in particular and the image you leave the reader with the sunset.
