Looking Forwards

The last year had been hard.
He found himself dwelling
On failures
And hard times,
Unable to leave them behind.

How though,
Could he stride forward
With one foot always in the past?
Trapped and tethered,
Torn and tattered.

He resolved to look forward;
His past had shaped him,
And taught him,
But he would not let it bully him.
He would walk forwards,
With small,
But certain,
