Mirrors of our Mind

Staring into the mirrors of our mind
We work so hard to figure out
What went wrong? What went wrong? What went wrong?

And get caught up in moments
That are already gone
That we can’t really change
That exist only in the reflections of our hearts

But we hold them captives and re-run them in our thoughts
And we suffer each terrifying painful moment over and over again
As if the pain will let us somehow go back and change them
So things will be different
So things will be better
And we think, ‘If only, if only, if only….’

Looking back
We sometimes forget to take one step forward

So we get stuck in looking back
And forget that He has told us to
Forget the former things, do not dwell on the past

Because saying ‘If only, if only, if only…’
And thinking, ‘If only, if only, if only…’
Keeps you among the dead
Burying your dead
Let the dead bury their dead

Live for today
Live for this moment
Live for the only thing promised

Don’t search in the past
Any promise for your future
Don’t look back
To that which cannot change.

Trust in Jesus
The holder of your future
Cling to his hand
And live for today.

This touched my heart and was a great reminder for me to keep looking ahead to Jesus. Well written!

I love this poem. very well wriiten I hope you find a buyer-it deserves to be published. So many people grapple with this problem including me. I like the phrase "let the dead bury the dead" sums it up--the past is dead but we are alive today and we will miss it if we gaze too long into our past
