Wished I Could Turn Back To The Past

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Turn, Turn, Turn.”

Turn, turn, turn

Turn, turn, turn

Maybe you think seasons change so quickly. Actually I don’t want to go anywhere. Please stop this time machine because everytime it spins I feel like I’m more distance from the past.

I’ve lost someone I love in the past, that’s why leaving the past is like leaving him. Stuck to the past? Yeah, perhaps, I’m not sure. Because sometime I look far forward to the future where I can put all the sadness behind me and start over everything. Just don’t know where exactly it will start. There’s always a part of me wants to turn back to the past.

In The Middle Of Nowhere

Wrong Turns

When was the last time you got lost? Was it an enjoyable experience, or a stressful one? Tell us all about it. – The Daily Post

This happened about a month ago when I drove my friends home. I didn’t know where one of them lived. She gave me direction. All I knew was there’s traffic jump along the way to her house. Especially in the afternoon when people went home from work. I reached her house after forty five minutes driving. Then I went home along with another friend. On the way, I decided to turn right instead of straight forward. It’s because I wanted to avoid traffic jump. I didn’t know the direction but my friend told me she knew it.

I didn’t know what’s on her mind, I did count on her and she forgot the direction. Then I just drove my car along the way. The road was too narrow so I couldn’t turn back to the place before I got lost. It was like one way ticket. That wasn’t a stressful experience. I enjoyed it. Really! It’s so exciting exploring new thing, isn’t it? so let’s enjoy it. It took two hours before I reached the house.
