I want to live my life in the present
but my past intervenes without my consent.
Memories from a far-off time flood back
and I am unable
to defend myself from their attack.
The decisions I made all those years ago
now raise their heads and won’t let go.
What if? Is the most common question,
the answer only add to my depression.
I know I must learn from past mistakes
what happened before was just an outtake.
