The lens Reveals all, memories from The past, always remaining
Past memories linger, Scrolling by on a slideshow, Painted black and white Those snapshots haunt me, Smiling faces mocking, Laughing at where I am now
A beautiful mixture, Unmatched by any other dish The human soul, What incredible flavor For such an ugly meal
Deep within a forest Lined with crimson trees, There lies a deep cave Stretching for miles and miles, Lit from the glow of gentle crystals, It goes on and on
If we become too engrossed in the past, it can have a detrimental impact on our present and future lives. Reference the past for knowledge gained and lessons learned, but don't live in it. The simple truth is the past is in the past; we can't change what's already happened, no matter how we try. But, you still have a whole life ahead of you to focus on and build.
