I can no longer force them

the wounds I won't let heal.

The were just an excuse

for me to hate the world.

But my reasons happened too long ago

they've lost their power.

Or maybe I've just come to understand

that they're not what I want anymore.

I think I've given up on things from the past

and now I can live in the present.

The past existed

and I have to thank it.

it made me who I am today.
