LOOKING FORWARD by Tamar Haytayan Armen As we all try to look ahead Trying to focus further on We cannot help but wonder of yesterday Lingering for a moment In the experience of it all Will tomorrow be better? The ever present question Lying dormant in our subconscious Woken up by memories We try hard to capture Will the flowers bloom In the fields of our varied lives We remember the seeds sowed In the earth of our memories We go forward always Distracted by life Powerful enough But not enough To distract us from who we are -- Tamar Haytayan Armen was born in Lebanon, lived in London for over 20 years and after volunteering in Armenia for one year with the Armenian Volunteer Corps, now lives in Vancouver, with her husband, Haig. Tamar is a trained photographer, and works as a freelance writer. She says "A day doesn't go by without the thought of Armenia in my mind."
