SHEDDING THE PAST A shredding machine would come in handy Regret simply vanish via this modus-operandi Some people are able to never look back Most of us ponder how we went off track These thoughts can haunt and cripple us Preoccupied with past—joy becomes rust God never requests we check rear-view mirrors Lamenting all shortcomings and imagined errors Rest in the present looking forward with hope Nothing in our past thwarts Gods vast scope

    Joy becomes rust... what a clever way to word it! Keep on moving forward and don't look back... wise advice. You are one of the most insightful poets on the site... keep posting and writing as you do! I've been a bit busy (and will only get busier for now). But I'm trying my best to catch up on my p-soup friends! You will just have to be patient with me... lol.
