Description: This was part of a journal. Not sure why I decided to post it. I guess I just wanted to hear some opinions.
Five Years -------------------------------------------
five years. five years of mistakes and regrets and hurts and laughs and friends and memories and moves.
five years of dreams and wishes and love and hope.
five years of wanting, and when i find it i give it away.
five years of caring, until i just dont care anymore
feels more like five minutes
feels more like five hundred
five years i can't erase
five months i wouldnt if i could
five years that are more beautiful and painful than anyone could know
five years that are almost over.
the past is something you cannot erase, or forget. but you cannot dwell in it. mistakes are made. things happen. but if you can still look onto the future, and keep one foot in front of the other, you'll be moving along, to make something of yourself down the road, if you haven't already.
Friends are the hardest things to let go. but sometimes the easiest. if you learn to let go of friends that don't want to be your friend anymore, than it will be easier than dwelling on them, and wishing that they were still here.
Reminiscence is common to us all, and we can't help but go back through the years. This had a haunting quality about it though, as though the five years were normal but also unusual and especial! I like the mood it evoked; five years; five precious years, lived, and never to be lived again!!
It is good to think about things past and look to the future but truly, to live in NOW - make this moment the best & forget the rest....we all make mistakes and memories good and bad but never live with regret - just BE!
I think it's great that you express yourself in a journal and better that you share
five years....gosh thats a long time by then ill have graduated and be living in japan;or ill be on the street a hobo living in a cardboard box with no power....
[censored] the Future(excuse my french)
no but back to your writing i know you dont want to her this especially since this is personal (i know how you feel) and important to you but i have a feeling if you put this into a few/severa; stanzas and put a litte rythm in it it would make a world of change
BUT one thing i did like about your poem was that it made me think it made me think about my life and in FIVE YEARS for now will i be sitting there thinking about all the mistakes and all the things ive done and 50 years thats a heck of a long time!
thanks for the read
