The Past Was A Lesson

Not A Life Sentence

By Susan F WeimerPublished about a year ago 1 min read

Why do you allow your past to haunt you?

About it, there is nothing you can do.

Why do you allow it to distress you?

Can you solve anything living through

Those memories time after time?

Decide to change your mind

And climb from the hole you find yourself in

There are few things you could have done or been

Worthy of punishment day after day

Not one person worth worrying about what they

Say or do worthy of staying in your mind

More than a second of your time

Purge from your mind those memories

And forget about those enemies

Of the inner peace that you deserve

And inner peace you will observe

If you liked my article you can treat me to a cup of coffee. It will go a long way in supporting me as a writer.
