NaPoWriMo 10 – Patterns

I can’t put things behind me that I didn’t do before

I can’t do tomorrow what I didn’t do yesterday

It’s these things keep me from staring backwards

It’s these things that won’t let me change tomorrow


I try to be better than I was the day before

I try to forget so that I may advance and get better

But I stumble when trying to change myself

And walk blindly into my own shadows


It’s not impossible to change yourself

It’s not unheard of to change your mind

So on a daily basis I change my mind

And hope that you can change yours sometimes too.

About Barbara Blackcinder

I am a poet/writer with a need for words. There are so many out there that I haven't used yet. They define all reality and mine when you read those from me.
