Time Traveler

Traveling, into the dim reaches of reality.



Venture back into the past I do.
Times long ago, I can't undo.

Back in time when I was a kid.
Eons have past, heaven forbid.

Places that I have visited before.
Spaces not wanting to re-explore.

Bruises, scars, some are painful.
Matter of fact, many be baneful.

Asking myself from time to time.
How can I ever undo the crime?

Guilty feeling passed onto me,
For things I never asked to be.

Stuff I never would have chosen.
Deeds that should remain frozen.

I know in my heart, I had no control,
but my mind this still doesn't console.

Baggage sometimes weights me down.
Leaving me tired, on my face a frown.

Darkness, regret, takes over the light.
Doesn't matter how hard I try to fight.

Dwelling in the dim reaches of reality.
Not always maintaining my own sanity.

Try, yes I do, to be a better person each day.
Why do these feelings haunt me this way?

Wondering to myself, is this my destiny?
A traveler going back in time for eternity.

Why do you always haunt my dreams?
Just leave, don't you hear my screams?

Love from my family and friends.
In actuality helps the dullness end.
