Haunted

On winter nights
my mind starts wandering
to memories from my past
which
 leave me pondering.
Would my life have been better
if I had chosen another path
or did I have a lucky escape
from someone’s wrath.
You can never really know
a person by looks alone,
it takes time to peel away
the layers that they have shown.
What you find may not be
what you wanted,
but by then it may be too late
and the whole experience
has left you haunted.

  1. No point in time is the end.

    What was not achieved before the point, could still be achieved after the point

    And it really doesn’t take much time to achieve if we string ourselves into a mission and can foresee (and believe) the result in the end of the project.

    Best wishes
