“Into the Future” (Poem)

This was written 16 August 2018. It’s about my most recent post for Over the Invisible Wall.

I need a break

From the hard words

I’m writing

The painful memories

I’m recalling

I cannot and should not forget

But I remember

So clearly

The pain I was in

The pain which

Inspired so many poems

That now hurt to read

I understand depression

And wish I did not

But I can’t change the past

I can only continue

Into the future.
