When you want to pack your suitcase
with memories long gone
just so you can open them up in your new beginning
and hold on
to what used to make you suffer
and keep you back
at the end of the line
with time it will be just like the old days
and you will end up back where you began.
Instead, start fresh
make new traditions that heal you
and throw away the old you
and forgive those who know you
become a new truth.
The fight will be grueling
constantly battling with the mind
harming the body
losing the spirit —
It’s not all bad.
Because your muscles will tear
it will ache in your bones
it will manifest as darkness in your soul.
Without that, though,
the only way to go
is back up again.
Keep fighting and you will win.
