Life In Reverse

Each day that forever goes by me;
It does so just like the Sun,
As each one does so only backwards;
And I count my way back down to one.

Somehow my life plays in reverse now;
For others their best moments
in life have just past,
For me the first feelings I will move back to;
Will never end up just being my last.

In a way I am glad I live my life backwards;
For this way my incorrect actions
are all unbound,
Just like an unplayed symphony;
Yet to make its very first sound.

Endless possibilities
for my kind abound now;
Every step taken already been seen,
Eagerly awaiting yesterday
as it’s my tomorrow;
For me the past is my future unseen.

For me your future
has already happened;
Where for you
it is an unwritten page,
For your past it is filled
with old memories;
As for me everything it is silent
My bird it has never been caged.

As I move back
all else moves toward me;
Strange to see the things my eyes do,
Of butterflies turned back into pupae;
Of forgotten valentines roses
Reborn as if made into new.

This world is really a strange place;
When you witness things
in the way that I’ve seen,
Broken lives they come back together;
Broken love made new like once been.

My own life it unfolds before me;
Things once were are slowly undone,
All the events that I have been through;
Will eventually unwind into none.
For this is the burden of my journey;
To start with everything I will ever gain,
Through time I will lose my true love;
And still a broken heart with I will remain.

So whether you live life forward
or backwards;
In the end things can turn out the same,
You’ll just see things
from a different view point;
Just living life
is its own reward

We’re all just pawns
in the same game.
