To Shatter Self-Importance

Never Look Back

© Christina Renee Donnal

Never look back at your past,
The past is the past,
and nothing at last,
Look into the future,
for what you might see,
is you and me forever.


Oftentimes, individuals dwell on the past too much. I am guilty of this as well and this poem really shatters self-important secluded views of the world. The poem says that individuals shouldn’t look at the past too much and just envision the bright future ahead.

The poem tries to tell people that thinking about the past too much will affect the future in a negative manner. The persona is also saying that love isn’t about the past, it’s about the present and the present will be the one to affect the future.
