Don’t cling to your past

For today’s one word prompt: Cling

Do you have a bad past?

A past that reminds you of your mistakes and failure,

Broken relationships and torment and abuse and lure.

Loss of your loved ones and fame and wealth,

Or sinking career or your poor health.

Do you cling to your past?

 

Do you have a good past?

A past that reminds you of your glorious days,

Everything you did was worthy of praise.

People to love you and adore you and embrace,

You didn’t give a damn about anything you face.

Do you cling to your past?

 

If you had a bad past, doesn’t mean you have to live with it,

If you had good memories, don’t cling to it either.

Dwelling in the past means not moving ahead,

When you don’t move ahead you don’t see what’s next.
