“NEVER GO BACK,”
The Way YOU CAME!!
It is A KOAN* It is A GAME!
Jesus is quoted (as): “DON’T GO BACK!”
BUT – Our translations often lack,
THE NUANCE, or THE SPIRIT! See?
So what-did-HE-(Jesus?) -mean?HERE’S A KEY:
The Point HERE is – You NEVER can,
GO BACK!! The-same-way – FOR, THERE’S “A BAN,”
Return to THERE!
Many folks have said: “BEWARE! Of returning to your past!””
BUT – You CAN’T DO IT – (for) ONCE YOU’VE PASSED,
By-a-place, or done a thing,
All things have changed – and you CAN’T bring,
Original factors with original mind,
The past is gone! Perhaps, you’ll find,
That you can TRY – to-too return,
WHY NOT LEARN
THAT TO DO “IT” OVER, YOU’D HAVE TO FORGET,
HOW YOU ARE NOW – SO, PLEASE DON’T FRET!
You CAN go back to: (pause)
LOVERS, FOODS, & FAMILIAR FACES,
But, simply, there’re NO former times:
ALL THINGS ARE CHANGED; THERE ARE NO CRIMES,
In returning – to WHERE or WHO,
Or WHY or HOW, THE WHEN IS NEW,
For it is NOW, As it was THEN,
AND YOU-CAN’T-GO-BACK, OH, SON OF MEN!
JUST TRY, YES, TRY – TO RETURN,
YOU CAN NOT DO IT – YOU CAN ONLY YEARN!
So, Jesus was saying: “Relax, You All!”
It’s NOT “DON’T” RETURN, But-you-“CAN’T,”St. Paul! ❤
- a little, spiritual saying – to give you something to say!! 🙂
