Past mistakes

Past mistakes

A Poem by claire
"

We can't hide from them even we want to.

"
Does it matter who we are now,
When the past threatens us every day
Because of some mistakes we made,
Without being aware of the consequences
Which could destroy our future
So simple,
So simple...

We liked the moment we made them
Without thinking about what might happen
If they found out, we wouldn't have any more
Control on the gossips,
On our secrets,
On everything we hid from others.

Now everything is destroyed and we can no longer
Fix life-threatening mistakes
Which threatens us even for a moment,
When their trace was forgotten
By mystery hunters
Which smelled the lies.          
We hid from their eyes.

I wonder how we can live
When everyone is staring at us
As if we were the only ones to blame
From this confusing investigation.
When they look you up and down
Hoping to discover the existing clues,
When they criticize your gaze, your gait, your breath.

We didn't think about the consequences
Being too absorbed in the moment
We did what we thought was right
Without realizing it for a second
How much it would affect us all ...

Guilt is a horrible thing. Many suffer from it. It gets us nowhere. Everyone makes mistakes. We just have to resolve to do better. Some people can move on but others continually beat themselves up. That is a pity. I am sure you will have readers who will relate to your poem. All the best.

Great part of me feels this is a sort of slide of hand trick, it is something people did in Vaudevillian times. In one hand you have words, thoughts, history. In the other hand you have the emotion behind those thoughts, words and history.

Some will understand, some won't, and others won't want to because it doesn't fit within the pigeon holes of their existence. Religious structures, social orders, political agenda, familial structures - all tend to "guilt" us through our following of their boundaries - and all to often succeed. Do as we say NOT as we do is a common thread. Good seeing you again.
