About the Poem
I wrote this after realizing that many of us let the past interfere with our present. We must learn to let go of the past so that it does not ruin our present or future.
|by Leslie Rentas|
|The past holds many secrets
better left untold . . .
For to bring them to the present
its bitterness unfolds . . .
The memories we cherish
may be tarnished by its gloom . . .
Its darkness and its sorrow
is to what we are doomed . . .
There is no need relive the past
for to do so is in vain . . .
Yesterday's gone, today is here
why relive the pain . . .
Forget the past as you turn away
and wish it a farewell . . .
For no longer in the past
will your present dwell . . .
