I’m afraid I’m being foolish

As a result of my blindness, a blind

Trust

My complete emotional immersion.

Judgment blurred,

Inhibitions lowered.

I live life for the m oment

And cherish each one

Life never stays one way.

But when it’s a drag;

Release yourself.

Unstrap your mind, make it your own.

Now is the time to be free!

Stray from the pack.

Remember,

The past, your past, but one mustn't obsess!

You will learn from your stories, but beware the glories

The memories of triumph, power, and the rest we all know.

Their intoxication OVERPOWERS, 
Even the strongest of
Men.

Nobody can resist the temptation;

The lure!

That positively magical sense of pure ecstatic rapture,

It’s natural, it’s always there!

Exactly the same, 
 perhaps more so.

We glorify and promote it, without thinking twice.

It’s overpowered our frontal lobe;
 it pushed it back

You’re basing life off feeling a sensation?

That is not real! 
That I’m sure.

They may have been once, sometime,
 Who knows how long ago?

Do you even? 
Who cares,
 it’s past and I’m not one to get stuck.

In the past, our past,
Or my past.
Your past.

But now it’s not quite relevant.

Perhaps to simply learn from.


 What one shouldn't do at times.

How could we have been so blind?

Our eyes were open but our minds were closed

we didn't know what is meant to open up

to free at last

to bend,

or twist

or blow

 

OUR MINDS

 

Until, suddenly, the truth:

A fiery EXPLOSION,

Where from? You do not know?

It says, so clear

Just like a summer day

It’s warm and kind and full of joy,

Until the darkness starts to destroy,

love and light. 

Desolate like the darkest night

When it comes to you, you will not notice

‘Till you’re just too late, and trapped, you begin to feel hopeless

The goal is to make the absolute best of it

Although one may feel more helpless than they admit

Or filled with emotional storms of despair

It simply goes to show, to be cautious if told 'beware'


One's rationale behind for their reasoning to enter

Such a downward spiral within the center of your mind

will start to take effect, the tell tale signs easy to see

They use 'depression' as a crutch, to excuse their bad behavior

or their blantant disregard for the rules we all must follow

Never caring why, or receptive to the possibility

Such mindsets could produce a problem

Didn't

 your mommies and our daddies explain, during impressionable youth, that

“The world is an evil place, and we’re all the same inside

Selfish, evil, always deceitful

Don’t even bother with young optimism; it will not change a thing”

Such apathetic attitudes towards negativity that can be easily removed,

Our lives have come to this, a predictable life, with a schedule that doesn't change

How do you defend your bliss?

From dark forces that live to hurt

Like a dementors final kiss

You’ll be left lucid and living, yet so drained and hollow

You’ll pray that somehow death will follow soon after

 

You must immerse your mind, but just this once, in memories from your past

That one that brings the most feelings of peace

And love, unity,

As well as respect.

Suddenly?
 

Rise and shine! Fantasy time has ended.

It’s time to wake up,

 

Because reality is here now, it
 is time to get up

Try your best, and don’t forget to remember

The kinds of things you’re to be told:

 

Open, your conscious, and start the clean and redeem

It’s all over, the time was now. It was just a dream

You got a bit carried away, though, we don’t care, ask why or how

The reason you need to stop this

Self-

Pity

Loathing

Criticizing

Torture

Is to let your life go on

And let life file your growing past into files for use much later

The time is now to wake out of your dream

Hop off the cloud that you created in your head

Instead it’s time for you to choose,

 

To join the zeitgeist,

It’s up to you

A memory of a memory

An insane obsession over what once was

Instead, think about this

If what goes up, must come down, it’s only a matter of patience, and waiting, before it comes from being down, and goes right back up

Life always gets better if you wait for it

And always learn from,

Accept,

And move on from,

THE PAST
