Daily missive breaks into the weekend Saturday the 22nd of November~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive breaks into the weekend Saturday the 22nd of November

The world is changing,
Even mountains move.
Every day the road ahead
Can take a different turn,
And the skies above
Grow darker.
The river
We need to cross,
Flows on,
But keeps on growing wider.
So many travellers
Lose their way,
In its endless stream,
Feet go out from under,
And with barely
A splash
To mark the fall,
They flounder,
And are carried to the sea.
Are they lost
For good and all,
Anymore than you or me.

And in the bar
The sad old man
Who drowns,
In the shallows
Of another drink,
Remembers yesterday.
And through
Beer stained eyes
Still sees what was lost
Reflected in the glass.
He tells himself,
And not for the first time,
Just one more,
And he will
Find his way again.
But past’s illusion
Holds him back,
He is ever in its sway,
Until the river rises
And along with this
Delusion
It sweeps them all away.
