Rose-Coloured Glasses

Content Warning: Discussions of Future Uncertainties

I was once informed


life travels blissfully when moving ahead

but if you turn around, 

the road you constructed 

yearns to retrace your steps.



being surrounded 

by our memories.

Offering an escape, 

a sense of comfort

like a warm blanket 

during the winter.

It is so tempting


Should I stay.

Should I try

to relive the beginning. 

Isn’t it better that way?

Or should I carry on

with my journey

i’m torn


Am I seeing things 

through rose-coloured glasses

or am I


of facing 

what’s right

in front of me
