The shadows of time.

OctPoWriMo 2013 Day 12.


The shadows of time
follow me
and I look back
to the times gone,
searching for those
unknown faces
in the known lands.

The shadows of memories
gone by wither me
and I shrink,
but all is not sad
for happy moments
cross by.

The shadows of mine
I look into the mirror
and talk to myself
touching the fine lines
on my face
reminiscing the times
long gone by.

The shadows of future
try to forlorn
but I look into it
with bright eyes.

"I look into the mirror

Very thoughtful poem, optimistic. This was my favorite part...thought it grounded the poem very well and I loved the image.

These lines struck me:
"searching for those
unknown faces
in the known lands."

Feels like I am looking the crowds over, too, when I read this.

Thank you.
