Coming Through

Remembered Pain

Searing through my memory,
Branding iron of used to be,
Remembered pain..

I deny it’s hold on me,
I will not live in misery
Or let it’s remnants hurt me once again.

A victim once through circumstance
I will not let past happenings hold sway
.
Recalling of past agonies
Will not shape who I choose to be

My future life,
My destiny,
Unsullied by its poison will remain.

I cast out the indignity,
Of all that has been done to me,
I choose to be
Unsullied, unashamed.

Cathy, Brava! Wonderful poem with a terrific message. The past is the past. We can learn from it, but we shouldn't obsess over it and let it rob us of the rest of our lives. And we do have the choice, though it can be very difficult to see that.

Thanks for sharing this!
