ever walking

backward n forward ever
backward yet on ahead
some would say it takes strength
to be pulled from looking back
at those merciful times of long ago
walking simply and readily forward
on ahead lost of any willpower
to reforge and refocus amongst
ever pre-destined future droplets
of another billion here's and now's...
left to ponder-onder...is it then to be
deemed as weak to yet playfully
take decisive and measured back
steps one after each other evenly
spaced choreographed within a
perfected gliding backward gate
yet forever humming on...on ahead
...eyes a glow, dancing within it's past
delights as the body duly accepts
it's future's boundless course...
