No Matter the Detours

Lately my thoughts
Seem to wander
Backward
Focusing more on
Where I came from
Less on where I’m going
Hopes for things to come
New adventures in this
Wild, unpredictable life
Hang in the back of my mind
But those thoughts
Are not for today
Today is for remembering-
Seeing me as I once was
Embracing the path
That lead me to this
One singular moment
Embracing the faces
That loved me
No matter the detours
Showing gratitude as
I wander backward
And forwards

  1. This is what I want to reflect back to you from your poem.

    Wandering backward to remember…
    Embracing the faces
    That loved me
    No matter the detours

    In this I get a sense of choosing the present moment then choosing to look around in gratitude. Thank you for sharing.
    Stay warm,
    Ali
