one day

“Life can only be understood backwards but it must be lived forwards”

-Soren Kierkegaardsorenkierkegaard105030

One day 

i thought about 

going back to where i was born, 

passing by the hospital 

where i first saw light, 

going back to a time 

where with me was born 

the fight but also the flight. 

One day 

I thought i could travel back in time, 

walk along the shore and find a lost rhyme, 

some words i had lost in the sand 

at a time i thought would never come to an end. 

one day,

I thought i could live backwards 

reliving all the happy moments in time 

when lemons i  had found were made to lime  ,

when transformations were illusions 

i was so sure i would find. 

one day, 

i flew back in time 

and you thought it was

a search for you, 

but baby, 

it was an expedition to carve ice, 

it was a chiseling away 

of what was left 

of my heart. 

One day, 

i thought i would 

go back  in time

but the Danish philosopher 

advised not to, 

and i could never  find
