To Leave It Left


Behind to leave it left.
As is meant when taking forward steps.
Behind to leave it left and there kept.
As is meant with or without regrets,
That can not be changed if one wished...
Or wanted,
If one could!

Behind to leave with times gone,
With a moving on...
From a past that has existed,
To leave to reminisce...
But not relive as if to seek benefits,
To undo or do as if this makes sense...
In prolonged visits,
That can not be changed if one wished...
Or wanted,
If one could!

What does it take,
To think something through?
Before one foolishly makes a wrong move?
And what does it prove...?
To who when this is done,
For a time to return...
To undo what was then so dumb?

Behind to leave with times gone,
With a moving on...
From a past that has existed,
To leave to reminisce...
But not relive as if to seek benefits,
To undo or do as if this makes sense...
In prolonged visits,
That can not be changed if one wished...
Or wanted,
If one could!

'What I would give if my mind was left turned on.'

Would you then be conscious?
And with a thoughtfulness?

'What I would give if my mind was left turned on.'

Would you then be conscious?
And with a thoughtfulness?

'What I would give if my mind was left turned on.'

Leave it.
To leave it and leave...
Left!
Just,
Leave it.
To leave and leave it there,
Kept!
