Can't Look Back
Katherine, Age 12, Reston, VA

I don't care
I don't dare
To cry anymore.
I'm in too much pain.

I'm just sitting
In the rain,
Looking back
To the place I
Won't return to again.

Sorrow fills me.
But I must move forwards,
So I can't look back.

There's too many memories
That I want to forget,
Too many painful thoughts
About the day when you left.

How can I follow the light
When there's nothing but darkness?
How can I survive the night,
Knowing that you're not here
Holding me tight?

I try to stop myself
From thinking these thoughts.
I keep telling myself
That I must move forwards,
And can't look back.

Never look back.
