it feels as if my past keeps haunting me.
that makes me think how possibly i could be
incapable of change.
why is that the baggage i chose to remove
keeps returning itself back to me?
why is it all people see?
do they not see the change i’ve made?
why is it so easy to focus on the negativity?
and why is it easy to hold onto the past?
the lump in my throat and the feeling of my chest
throbbing because of the pain that i thought
people would have seen i’ve let go of,
seems to come back to me.
