The Past

The past hurts but it's in the past. Time to move on, less we be consumed by it

The Past

It's there
I see it no more but it lurks in the dark
Sometimes it hurts
Sometimes, I forget it
But sometimes, it creeps up on me
Sometimes even when I least expect it
And tells me what was right and what was wrong
Hiding the shame that I felt once upon a time
Hiding and yet revealing it still
Clouding my thoughts
Consuming my memory
What I did and what I should have done
And what hurts the most
Is that I feel futile
Because there is nothing I can do about it
But to forge ahead and to learn from what it has taught me
What it is teaching me now
And what it is about to teach me still
Though I can never change it
It's in the past
It's the past
And the past hurts
Even though it's in the past

Past is well past, lessons well learned and we move on. Remember for the right reasons, even the hurts so that we are aware of the pitfalls - siva
