Ghosts of Your Past

When the ghosts of your past

Look you in the eye

Do you stop to wave them off,

Or simply say goodbye?


Or do you choose to dwell upon

Their moaning of regret

And all of the humility

You will not soon forget?


Do you take for granted

The gift of the present day

And fill it with the past

Where you choose to stay?


Do not take heed in the specter's words

For they're leading you away

From what could've been your future,

And the present day

This is a great poem, real to life. So many choose to live in the past. This is my husband completely thanks for posting.
