They come and they go.
The memories of yesterday.
They sometimes fill your mind
with joy and happiness
and other times with sorrow and regret.
Sometimes the memories
appear as clear as the present
causing you to take a pause.
you’re caught between now and then
and frozen in time.
Your mind is forcing you to choose.
What will your choice be?
Will you live in the past that is long gone
or will you thrive in the present for a better future?
This is the time for you to come to the realization
that you must not let
your past continue to haunt you
or hold you back.
You must lock the past away
and never allow it to seep into your present.
You must cope with its existence
but understand that there is a time for everything
and your past is in the past.
