    We Can Change The Way We Look At Our Past

    We cannot change our past, but we can change our present and future. I over think a good majority of things, especially my past. What I have come to terms with is that our past cannot be forgotten and that we cannot change it. But, we can change the way we look at it. All my life...

    Will The Future Ever Measure Up To The Past?

    So many beautiful memories from the past, sometimes I wonder if the future will ever measure up. I miss so many people who used to be dear to me but they do not wish to be in my life anymore. Nor should they. What's over is over, but I always have this urge to reach out. To go...

    I wish I could just go back in time.

    I wish things were different. I wish you were mine. Still. Not a day goes by I don't think about you. When I see you instead of just saying hi and bye I would kiss you.

    Mistake

    I know that it's over and done with and you say that it's all in the past, but sometimes I just can't help it. I think of how it felt to tell you and how lost you seemed. The cold in your voice that I had never imagined would be directed at me. I remember how bitter you sounded...

    Scars

    I think about the past a lot... probably to much. It really affects the way I am today. My childhood kind of haunts my mind at times. I usually can block it out almost like I didn't have one but everyone has a trigger. Its very vague but the smell of old beer on his breath still...
