The day I dread came to visit,
once again I feel the same pain I’ve felt before.
Only this time I face it alone.
The past is taunting me,
making it hard to move on..
Old words linger in my mind,
as the memories crush my heart.
Such mistakes mocks me in my dreams.
Each moment I think about it,
weakens me more and more.
Someday I’ll learn
to move on from the past,
and learn to forgive myself.
For now I just have to be patient
till the dreaded days are just the past.
“You build on failure. You use it as a stepping stone. Close the door on the past. You don’t try to forget the mistakes, but you don’t dwell on it. You don’t let it have any of your energy, or any of your time, or any of your space.” ~ Johnny Cash
