Not set in stone

The echos and shadows we created,
the unforseen extras of our being,
where do they go, in nights, behind our backs?
They won’t give us a clue, they don’t leave tracks.

Our written thoughts, our footsteps, what we say,
seem useless and forgotten very soon,
which probably is how it should be too.
New thoughts take over, so what can we do?

The echos and shadows we created,
not set in stone but lingering a bit,
they only were a part of us, a past
and we should well accept they do not last.

  1. Thought-provoking, Ina. They say, however, that all we express on the internet never really goes away, even if you delete it…..it lives forever..somewhere…..out there……

    • Thank you Cynthia. I tried to google back some comments I made a view years ago, but the blog is gone and the comments too, so I suppose there is an end after all 🙂

  2. I would like to hover around somewhere to see what (of mine) does hang around, and what does disappear, after I’m gone.

  3. Thought provoking and weird because I was thinking about all this in the car on the way somewhere and mentioned it to my husband who simply said it all goes into the soil and grows as flowers! Lol ❤ xx
