Past into Present

Thoughts of the past

Thoughts of the past are keeping me awake

Thoughts of the past make me want to scream about the pain in my soul

Thoughts of the past make me question my sanity

Thoughts of the past make me feel like my life back then was surreal

Thoughts of the past haunt me even when I am wearing a smile

Thoughts of the past make me want to lock my doors and never come out

Thoughts of the past make me question my actions today

Thoughts of the past makes me what to live my truth

Thoughts of the past makes me want to confront my hidden angry

Thoughts of the past makes me want to curse

Thoughts of the past makes me want to cry

Thoughts of the past never leave my mind

Thoughts of the past cut me deep

Thoughts of the past are dying to get out

Thoughts of the past want to give me a voice

Thoughts of the past remind me that I am a survivor
