Rearview Poem 3

She can’t see before her
Her eyes are trained backwards
Behind her
In the rearview
Daily she relives her past
Life’s victimizations and bad decisions
Situations, circumstances, trials
Never does she rejoice in knowledge obtained
Just a persistent need to see backwards
In the rearview
She bumbles, stumbles and crashes her way through life
Trying to overcome, reading, writing and learning
but always looking in the
She does not realize
The past is the past and must be left behind
She does not yet know, looking forward is how to let it all go
Until this lesson has been achieved
she will continue to stumble, backwards,
cause her eyes are trained on those images in the rearview
