Thread Carefully

Don’t settle down in the past.
Going there, living there
can be a real mood killer.

It’ll make you feel
like you’ve never left
if you allow
those feelings and emotions
to resurface.

You may never forget
and some things might keep
you up at night but thread carefully.

The days when you are at your best,
will be the days when
reminders explode like fireworks.
The past will show up with vengeance.
