Poem: When the Past Comes a CreepingSometimes when you’re minding your business,

the past comes a creeping.

Why does it seem to disturb you

at the most inopportune moment?

The past grabs you by the collar and squeezes tight.

You can’t swallow or talk.

It has you under its control.

Now, you must fight for survival.

It’s time to put the past in its place.

You refuse to let it reside in your life.

Get courageous and send it away for good.

Make a force field for your emotions.

Breathe in and breathe out.

You can conquer the past.

Be strong and do it.
