Looking Back

A Backward Glance

Musing, remembering, reminiscing,
A reverie replete with aspiration and idealistic ambition,
Searching for the right words to convey
Those emotions so embedded in the psyche.
That prophecy spawned of a bouyant confidence
Emboldened by youthful optimism and vague design
Now abounding with achievement incomplete.
An experience untouched by life, as yet unaware.

But there is something disconcerting
Fraught with angst and unease
About exposing –
Or imploding a profile of a life
Displaying its illusion
Its hunger still unsated,
Its goal still awaiting confirmation
Its tenure still seeking termination
And in so doing
For all life’s trials – a recompense!
