A Letter to My Past

Stay back there where you are, dammit!

Quit bugging me! Quit tapping me on the shoulder reminding me you are still there… that you are relevant…that somehow you matter right now.

Leave me alone.

Stop keeping me up at night with new perspectives on old stories for me to consider.

Stop attempting to seduce me to stay with you by using my own hope against me.

I need to let you go.

You need to let me go.

You’ll always be with me. I’m taking all of the best parts of you with me. 
The lessons. The good memories.

You’ll never be alone.

My present and my future will become my past too.

Stay where you are, okay… they’ll be along to join you soon.

Applause 👏 if you dug this (even if it was just a little). Share with a friend or four 💌 because sharing is caring. Follow because I like meeting new and interesting people in large groups 😉
