Time Traveller

Time Traveller

Travelling backwards in time,

we find the world we’ve left has changed.

It’s no longer the same as it really was.

Every scene is incomplete –

missing bad bits,

                                missing good bits,

jumbled up,

                confused,

                                reinvented.

We make it better;

                We make it worse;

We make it up;

                Based on the fragments

We choose to salvage.

Travelling backwards in time,

we find the world we’ve left has changed.

Opher – 6.11.2022

Memory is so fallible. We constantly reinvent it. So much is forgotten and misremembered. Our past is a complete fiction. Nostalgia ain’t what it used to be!

The past is lost in a fog. Even the written reports, photos and documentaries are tainted by our changed perspective.
