You Cannot –

You cannot bring the dream alive
By dreaming it again

You cannot change the past
Into the things it might have been

You cannot oust reality
For phantasms instead

You cannot live life looking back
When there’s still life
Ahead

  1. When I first read your tagline “there’s still life ahead,” I at first thought of still life paintings. I am that sardonic, to have wondered for a moment if it was tongue-in-cheek. I hope not. I hope I’m the only bowl of fruit around in the ahead!
