The Past, What Good Is It?

 number 40 essex steam
The past, what good is it?
the past the past the past
reveals discovers informs
sometimes transforming as
perception allows new views
revelations and metanoia
the heart once closed now
open sees the same things
but understands them more fully
using new eyes and new wisdom
not fearing the journey back
nor the journey forward
accepting what is past
it didn’t last, nor should it
there is only eternal now
the past only served to bring
to us in the present somehow
the past the past the past

so troublesome for so many
like loaded hopper cars of coal
we lug along dragging it
never quite free of the weight
the past is hell and heaven
just like the present moment
it didn’t last, nor should it
there is only now and always now
the past only served to bring it
to us in the present  somehow
the past is hell and heaven
just like the present moment
