I see things in my mind I want to forget

The pain, the loss, the betrayal

Things I wanted to do but never had the chance

Things I had the chance to do but never did

Images flash by in my mind

Though they only take a moment

the regret lies within me always

Childhood a mess of unreached goals

Always caught up too much in the past to move forward

To grasp at what is right in front of me is salvation

But is always out of my reach

My memories blind me

Day by day continuing on

Doing what feels right in my heart

Quieting those voices from my past

I am trapped in a world of my own creation

As are we all

If you live your life in the past

What reason is there for going ahead?

There isn't one.
