Looking Back at Me

Looking Back at Me

A Poem by Alfred Kukitz

a foothold on self


Looking Back at Me

Once there was nobody

not even me.

My senses begged

my heart bled in vain

once again nobody

i called out

nobody heard

i laid by still waters


mused in the silence

once again nobody



yet nobody

until age came to me

walked me down to the oldness

here, there,

i looked and found myself

looking back at me.

Sometimes to many things get in the way including myself. Thanks FT!

life does pass us by and sometimes we have to dig deep to see ourselves for who we have become... i enjoyed the biblical reference to the still waters and the positive outcome of your search, Al... glad you found yourself :)

I liked the ending of this poem Alfred. After all the searching and looking ahead-during young years, the old self, looks back :D great imagery and metaphor :D
