Echoes in my ears of a wonderful past
Screams of horrors from a not so great one
The sanctuary of my mind embracing me
At the same time it’s embrace smothering me
Making me breathless
But making me comforted too
Such is time; a river through a ravine
You can taste its sweet water
But remember slipping in it and drowning too
Then recalling that the water was cool and calm
But ravaging and inflammable like napalm
I can never be happy while recalling it
But I cant be sad whilst going down the memory lane
I am a human  filled with happiness and disdain
Whatever regrets I have, I have good recollections too
The past? I can learn from it? I can run from it?
I choose to learn to run
