Three Step

her past steps direct her to tomorrow 
navigating past today
she thinks she sees clearly

unable to smile
focused on her distant goal
wishing for one dream
today is invisible
no one able to reach her

she is a sad girl
thinking she will be happy
when tomorrow comes

    Don't we all get these three steps messed up !! Loved the analogy in this piece. We need to enjoy the present to enable us to see a clearer future.. "The devastations of the past have no place in the dreams of our future" Xx

    Good morning Kim, I agree but for so many people they have made that their reality. Thanks for commenting.

    Lovely, sad, and so true. Wishing for the future can blind us to now. Good luck in the contest. This should do well
