Let the clouds be swept away
So we can have this day
A chance to change
How we feel about the past
The sights were set to see out
When the sun comes
We will see out those dreams
You and me, the love I tucked away
A chance to change the way we feel about the past
Can invite us to make a future
Taking the change we can see
The sights we’ve set to see out
Talk to me about the line, “Mistakes change”? Is it declarative or the opening to the line that follows or perhaps both, hence the line breaking where it does?
Absolutely it is both. It’s declaring that mistakes change us… but also in a way connotes the next line, that these mistakes change the sights in life that you are ‘set’ to see out. Mistakes may be seen as bad but they also prompt change and decisions in this new perspective gained thereby what you are set to ‘see out’ next in our grand journey.. that is life. A carved path. It’s meant to be a bit ambiguous, no matter how much distaste I have for ambiguity… lol nonetheless up to the eye of the beholder 😊

Ah, fuck it. A poem should have a bit of mystery otherwise it ain’t so fun to step into.
