Venturing upon the past, reading journals long since forgotten. Burying my face in my hands out of despise for my actions i reflect back on just how horrible i was. Regret will not help and forgiveness is for foolhardy souls. Punishing myself will only lead to more pain and forgetting it will be the worst of all. I step back and realize that what i did in the past im repeating and i will not allow myself to fall to that level. Goals, Dreams, Plans, The Ends must be met before the curtain falls. Setting the stage is a difficult task and must be a cautious venture. Learning from the past and using it as another mask in the future is a well developed skill i have acquired. with this new mask i will walk with ease again. a mask of memories past to help me guard from future ventures and avoiding the past that still lurks in this period of time.
