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 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 does not come
with a guarantee.

  1. Great writing.. Reflective of the thought process that occurs as one crosses halfway in life..

    Life doesn’t come with a guarantee of positive emotions…

    But neither does it come announcing its insecurities…

    However, its worthwhile as you have said…

    And it is the same case for everyone.. great and low… the king or the slave..
