Future of my past

150

Washing my clothes, face and even heart
failed to eliminate the permanent stains
there’s still the pain that remains
my heart has not been able to forget
all that what it should’ve forgotten by now
and my present seems to be
so much of just a depiction of my past
a flowing water is comparable to life
and a stagnant one comparable to death
so what is exactly the future of my past?
where would I really end up?
what will be the future of my past…
will I be ever able to separate my present from my past…

Making mistakes but learning lessons out of them
is the real essence of life but what should be said
when someone seems to have learnt only to make mistakes
I’m standing here since long with no lessons learnt yet
since I don’t judge any difference between
the mistakes I made then and the one I’m making now
so will I be the one to stand here forever
trying to find the future of my past?
where exactly is my destination?
what will be the future of my past…
will I be ever able to separate my present from my past…
