Behind

Leaving behind history
Memories unrelated
Boxes of collected waste land
I travel light into
Oblivion.

Cornerstones once
Crumbled dust today
Forgotten collective
Remains a crack into
The soul.

Lessons or stories
Mythical or reality
History falls behind
Neatly into tidy boxes of
Oblivion.

Next exit of
The roundabout
A repeated
History
Chasing us
Behind!
