Time Travel – a limerick

If I had a way to travel through time
I’d go back to when I was about nine
My future to change
My life rearrange
And make my ridiculous world sublime

In response to Mind and Life Matters limerick poetry challenge.

    1. Oh yeah! Absolutely. Have you ever seen that Star Trek The Next Generation episode where time gets disrupted for Mr. Worf? He keeps slipping into alternate versions of his future from a fixed point in the past. That fascinated me. That all these different possibilities were out there running parallel to the timeline he chose. The possibilities were mind boggling. And infinite. And now I’m rambling!

    1. I am certainly envious when people can look back on their lives with contentment and satisfaction. I wish I could be like that. I guess much of my discontent lies with my current state of affairs. I know what it would take to make life better and yet I feel powerless to make those things happen. It leads to frustration and sadness. And longing.


      1. Perhaps it’s more of an acceptance of my lot as I’ve grown older (but not necessarily wiser!) Get frustrated by all means, it drives one ahead. Long away to your heart’s content, that’s another driver. Try not to be sad. That makes others sad, and that’s a bad thing. Go out and talk to the trees, to an animal, to the sky. They are very good listeners, especially animals, and they do not judge. Having preached a little I shall now retire to bed and feel sad for your sadness, but only for a very brief moment. I tried to find a poem I wrote but failed miserably. The first line was “Regret is a wasted emotion”!

  1. I don’t know an age that I’d go back to but I do know that if I had $1 for each thing I’d do differently, I’d have at least $50!

  2. Yea, I used to think that I would do many things differently if I could go back in time. But now not so much, maybe I’m a coward at not wanting to relive the past and as clichéd as it may sound, I like what I have become 😛
