A late night free thought & free verse...

Responsibility is the key to living

with things, things we can not change.

Some choices can not be replaced, time

can not be rearranged. 

 

Some mistakes can be forgiven, but 

they will have the will to linger, have 

the will to never be forgotten. They

will have the ability to run through us

but will never have the power to truly

haunt us.

 

Mistakes become past, and we can allow 

the same choices to become present.

The past may haunt you, but it will 

never stop you from being free. We always

breathe in and breathe out.

 

Guilt is a symptom of lingering phantoms.

Whispers that catch us when we’re about

to cry. While our hearts skip remembering a

beautiful memory, forcing us to cautiously

embrace a past.

 

Live with everything and just live.

Breathe in and out and just breathe

Let it all in and grow to let it all go.

 

The past may haunt you, but it will 

never stop you from being free. We always

Breathe a new future.

 

Past mistakes may have the ability to 

run through us, but they never have the 

power to say within us, to haunt us.

 

Hopefully, we grow and won’t even notice

we let it all go and the haunting becomes

no longer a choice, but a forgotten story.
