Bad Memories

Memories, bad memories

are the ghosts of the past

that haunt the power house

of a struggling present

racing slowly to catch up

with a promising but distant future.

Memories, bad memories

halt men on the move

and leave them hanging around

the checkpoint of regrets

where they are held down

by the ghosts of the hardly forgotten past

making the future a castle seen in a haze

never to be reached, never to be lived in.
