Every exit is an entry somewhere!

Remember...

Sometimes to move forward,
You need to move back.
To close open wounds,
To wipe away black.

So don't forget your past,
Don't forget the pain.
It won't always last,
Just break the chains.

Use your past for your future,
Don't forget what you've done.
But learn to continue,
Admit and you've won.

Admit your mistakes.
Love your pain and your hurt.
Try to up the stakes,
Get out of the dirt.

Letting go

If you forget you can't grow,
You can never move on.
Because inside you know,
It'll haunt you till dawn.

You tell yourself its fine,
But you know you are lying.
Just feel the pain,
Continue on crying.

You need to move back,
To see what comes next.
Don't be blinded by past.
Take time to reflect.

And then let go...
If you look back,
Into that woe,
Get back on track!

Look back not to hold,
But to remember...
The new.
The old.

Always,
Remember.

So true. Sometimes, we try to just forget the past. To erase all the bad memories. But it doesnt really happen till we're ready to forget it. Till we're ready to forgive ourselves for out mistakes.

Reminds me of a song by Ricky Martin:

Every endless night has a dawning day,
every darkest sky has a shining ray


True, past should be something to take cues from and not to fret about (not until the time machines are invented.) coz it can't be undone.

Simple words, beautiful meaning.

Cheers,

Beyond Horizon said...

I tried, I failed,
It caught me tight,
The more I tried to freed,
The more it gripped!

It was cutting into my flesh,
I screamed, I shuddered!

The Darkness, The Fright,
The Shadow, SHADOW?!
Source of light,
Strength to Let go,
Never Let go, what it taught!

These are the thoughts that flowed freely after reading your words....So easily they emerged, as difficult to do then being said, But Nothing is Impossible!
