Mindful living (free verse – senryu)

Living in the past
Drudging old wounds
Healed a long time ago
Trying to make pain last

Living in the past
Choices some will make
Bitter and resentful
Controls their every move
Living in the past
Makes them prisoners
Of their own decisions
Trying to make pain last

Living in their past
Avenging all their lives
Masked and sugar coated
Happy with glee
Seeing others suffer
Pretending that they care
We all know where they fare
Always living in the past
Avenging their healed scars
Masking their resentment
In passive-aggressive moves
prisoner of their bitterness
Ignoring their mental health

Living in the past
Drudging old wounds
Healed a long time ago
Trying to make pain last

Hurtful memories
All forgotten starting fresh
Living mindfully

  1. Interesting thoughts. When I allowed myself to only see myself as a victim a grip was still held on me. Once I decided I would no longer be the victim my life changed for the better. Choices.
