Nostalgia

Nostalgia is not

what it used to be

when dreams are

no longer there to see.

In their place

are unwanted memories

of a life that was

far from exemplary.

Looking back now

only makes you sad

mourning a life

that you wish

you could have had.

Family and friends

that you should

remember with a smile

serve only as a reminder

of when life

was worthwhile.

Nostalgia is not

what it used to be

but then again

life doesn’t come

with a guarantee.
