The Bad Gone For Good

Updated on May 31, 2012

Lets Hit Erase For One Final Time

I have lived those times that haunt me forever

I have tried to run and hide

They track you down faster than a blood hound

I had it with the fear

The tears that roll down the side of my cheeks

Those aweful headaches that put my body in a coma

Feeling sick as a dog and wish I could just roll over

Being humilated at the right moment

Embarressed for one last time

Feeling sorry for myself no more

I just hit erase and those memories are banished from my life forever

They are exiled and never to return

I have learned my lesson and now I am moving on

The evil times have crippled my thinking to believe

I must live with them

I was so decieved

I will tell you now better days will light up my life

The horrors of the past have set a fire and burned to the ground

Where their ashes are used to replentish the soil for new growth and new life

All that has happened has been for reasons I am sure

Now I am looking for more that is clear

Where lifes pits are spit out and forgotten about

As rude as it seems

They have no more value than the bannana skins and onion peels

I feel the weight off my shoulders lifted and my chin held high

If each time should sneak back into my life

I will make sure to stomp on it like the wack a mole at the carnaval

Beating it down and letting all my frustration out

Feelings that give us power and energy have returned

Strength to move all about and do the things that make me so happy

I encourage others to do the same and live on without the blame

For the good things we can accomplish have to be started now

They take time and effort and must be done daily without a delay

This way we can see all that makes us and others happy

In full view of the bay window we sit at and watch the sun rise and set

Happiness is here

Now that is something that leaves an empression that we will never forget

      Mhatter99 Too many bad past memories can affect your thinking.We all are capable of great things.Why not take another step closer to the wonderful way we want to live than looking back at the past and see what we should of done but didn't.Could of done but then again chose to pick a different path.Thanx so much for reading and sharing.
