The Past

Every once in a while
It is nice to revisit the past
To linger for a while on its memories
To relive them once again in our minds
To understand our journeys

It feels good to go back in time
To those years of our life
When life was so much different from now
To watch the scenes through a viewer's perspective
With detachment and objectivity

The past is part of our history
That should not be forgotten
Even if we have moved forward  in life
It is a time and place where our story and our personal  journeys have began

Where ever we are today
Is partly because of the past we left behind
It steered us to the direction we are meant to be in the present

Whether our past was painful or beautiful,
Whether it was happy or sad
It had influenced the life we have now
We thank it for all the lessons and memories it gave us

The lessons we learned  from the past
Have taught us to live our life better today
We owe it to the past for reaching this far
For making us more now, than we have ever been yesterday
