Yes, sometimes we have to leave the past behind.

That’s a good prayer to start any day.

On reflection one needs to act and claim back those lost years. They may present some opportunities emotionally strong! Wonderful take ZQ!

“Glorious as it has been or as tragic …” implies the same happening but seen differently. I like that.
Your picture reinforces this to me also. Many, many, don’t ever come to grips with reality here, feelings of the different generations.

I like the sentiment, the idea that it is never too late and that we can still find the things that should have been.

I like this, ZQ. I am all in favor of leaving the past behind and moving on. It is never too late, I don’t think, to find what should have been! Your presence at Poets United is most appreciated.

Your voice is so precise and measured and you manage to say so much with such careful ease – it is very admirable and contemporary poetry as it should be, I think – all kudos to you.. Always something of a treat for me to read something new from you… With Best Wishes Scott

I really like this!

Clever use of syntax: ‘has been’ (perfect tense) in the second line, the good feeling carrying through to today in its effect, and ‘was’ (imperfect) in line three, to distance us from the tragic.

Well–gotta love this–and smiles to you today

Love this! I spent yesterday standing in a booth at Pride Festival in Bend Oregon talking to folks about PFLAG!

Amen to that.
You have encapsulated that moment with precision, ZQ. The emotion is palpable.
Thank you for sharing on Real Toads.

its sometimes not about retracing or going back but having the courage and acting upon the next step forward

If we could just retrace our steps and find those steps that should have been …

I believe in fresh starts!

when we come together….perhaps that will be possible, you know…
moving forward instead of staying mired in what always was…

Hear Hear! There are entire nations that would benefit from reading your piece today.

Sometimes the obvious thing to do isn’t obvious until someone suggests it. I’m all for it, let’s go.
