homecoming…

bapa dola said
after years
of pursuing
wealth
and
fame
an old man
returned
to his childhood village
to
boast
of his accomplishments
only
to find it empty
all the huts
were
in shambles
the statue
of his protector
was but dust
and
tarnished metal
nothing was there
but
memories
and
so it is
with
all
seeking the past
he said

  1. We must enjoy today, the present is what we have. Memories of the past may or may not bring happiness and comfort, but alas they are behind us. Hold onto hope for the future.
