painted it

Trap your head with thoughts, Darker than your far future. Your past painted it!

And we trap ourselves gladly, but why?

Yes...we are tied by past, present and future. What we work on now can change us. I am reading jewel - never broken (an autobiography) Jewel talks about changing her thoughts even in her dire situation...being broke, living in her car, etc... but somehow she knew to make things better she must change the thought pattern.

Excellent point. I wrote this poem, thinking as much as I want to live in the present, I get stuck on thinking for the future, and looking aways in the past, thinking the past has always been the thing that drives the future and the present. It is like what i have take on Burnt Norton, the First of the Quarter by T.S. Eliot. Thanks for reading this and commenting by the way1
