the past is unsettling
because it can never be redone
it can only be filled with sad smiles
haunted tears and
bitter regrets that weaken with age
that no longer leave the bad taste
in your mouth they
once did
but the future is unsettling
because it cannot be known
and is notorious for breaking plans
and breaking people
and creating pasts
that futures hurt from
and the present is dangerous because
you are your pasts future and
your futures past
and nothing can make sense here
everything is confused
