Writing Pads – Written Friday 1st November 2019 (Aged 44)

Writing Pads

i look back
to find my life kept
in a standard writing pad
margins of error
or just margins
and ruled lines
which seem to have faded over time
i wrote it all down
even though the pages
have begun to colour in yellows and browns

i look back
to find my life kept
in the confines of a writing pad
all those chasing dreams
written on the lines
and sometimes in between
all those people
what did it all mean

i look back
at my life
and how i wrote it all down
a simple pen
but scribbled like crayon
and kept,
in these simple writing pads
the future is always there
but i can always look back
in all these standard writing pads
