I HAVE NEVER LEFT THE PAST BEHIND

Follows me it does, to everywhere as I can’ not run from it,

Memories are ours as we travel through the days given.

I believe the past has a great impression on our future,

These things we carry with us in an emotional way.

I have never left the past behind, I have tried going back,

Some of it still rests in dust and cobwebs, an empty shell.

Some of whom we are has been left behind, we can’not recover it,

I suppose there is a part we must let go of, the rest is here now.

We can walk backwards but not so fast as to see where we have been,

We are not suppose to go back only forward as we have our collection of then,

  1. “Forgetting the past I press forward to the mark of the prize of the high calling of God.” The past is a burden, the present is opportunity, and the future is hope. I personally think in as much as is possible the past should be forgotten because there is nothing that can be done to change it. Use the present and look to the future. Best Wishes
