Worth Remembering (a poem)

(Photograph done by me)

Sometimes there are days
When I wish I could have done things differently
And changed my ways
But why would I look back?
I need to focus on the present
Maybe there was a lot I lacked
Back then
But the sun is shining now
And I don’t see any clouds
Now is the time to make good memories
And capture special time with my family
Because why would I look back?
When I have so much to look forward to...
Sure I’ll probably have another bad day again
But Jesus is here to help me with all the pain
So why would I look back?
I know what I’m going to do
With those days
I’ll just forget them
And I know what I’m going to do
With these days
I am going to make them
Worth remembering

Sometimes I really feel depressed because of the past. But I know God has something planned that is so worth  it and so satisfying for me in the future, so why would I look back?

  1. Really Great Poem!
    And did you make your header? If so, I might be
    considering asking you to do mine! lol

    1. Thanks Aaliyah! Yup, I made my header - but my Mom took the photo of our family. If you give me the images you want in your header, I think I could do it! (Were you serious?) I'd be happy to do you a favour. :) We really need to talk on Skype again!

  2. Yes, I was being serious, and Yes, we do need to talk on Skype SOON!
    I have sent the pictures! And just so you know, The header is for Imperishable Beauty.

    1. Cool, Aaliyah! I'll start working on it today, but I don't know when it will be done...I'll email you and ask you about colours and stuff.
