Moving On

What hurts about moving on
is knowing that what you
once had is now gone. Now,
thoughts don’t skip a beat,
just like a record stuck on
repeat. Flashes of the past
dash by on the other side
of our eyes. Moving on is
like skipping your favorite
song: it just feels wrong.
Pain becomes strength.
Misery becomes history.
Doubt becomes acceptance.
Moving on is going forward.
Staying back is waiting for
life to attack. Don’t be a
victim to a life you’re given.

The Bookcase

My bookcase has books about stories –
stories about things – things people wrote.
Each book contains different moments
in time that defines a person’s mind.
Each page is a look into what has taken
place. My bookcase is full of life. I need
these stories to read to be set free.
