Moves On


What is past moves on
What is lost is gone
When things changed it's past
Because time moves really fast

I fear the fears to be alone
And I know how it hurts to be without

There was a dream and it was addicting
Unraveling time's pause
Immortalize the same and unchanging
But then nothing will grow

I feel her tears, oh Mother Earth
Life was meant to be changing in order to grow
Some day you'll understand this, she said
When you can unleash burden free from heart

If you can accept the change and move on
You'll find yourself slowly opening up
Let time moves to fix your wounds
And banish your burden at last

    Really love this poem. It does contain much truth and many people can relate to it. Find friends who will not move on unless it is with you and keep going. Stay strong and keep writing. (Report) Reply
