The Past

Want to know what the scary part about the past is?

Maybe it is the realization that you do not control what came of it–

Whether it was words you said 

Maybe it was the thoughts that weren’t fully thought out

Or maybe. maybe it is it the moments that are no longer ours

Because now these moments are but a universe of altered reality we replay in our heads. 

they may be slightly altered or abstractly different

some are only marginally more secured within us. 

& maybe some are ones that we ourselves, come up with

it might be to make up for our mistakes— and wishing if not dreaming of a second chance 

& maybe this is what we hope for. what we fear will never happen to our past. 

but like an elephant, our past will never forget.
