War Stories for My Grandchildren - A Memoir in Short Stories
by Jansen Estrup
I'm always living backwards
Looking over my shoulder to the past
Reminiscing over problems
And relationships that didn't last.
Constantly longing inside
To turn back time so I can redo mistakes
To make my life perfect
No matter how much it would take.
Sadly it's not possible
All I can ever do is simply regret
And wish I was wiser
And try to blank it all and forget.
Looking back I always see
When my life was connected to another's
Twisted up so tightly
That I felt we were sister and brother.
I can always hear the words
That I uttered at the wrong time
And deep inside I wish
That all these memories weren't mine.
I wish I could let it go
And move on with my own life
Forget about the past
And focus on just living right.
I long to be like others
Who seem confident with what they do
And I sit and wonder
If they all long to do the same too.
I just want to be free
To shake off the chains and fly free
Stop looking over my shoulder
And just love being able to be me.
