If you hold onto the past,
You die a little each day.
In life there are many paths,
It's up to you to chose which way.
There are trials and tribulations,
There are sorrows and frustrations.
You have to find your inner strength,
Because you cant just throw life away.
You have to learn to rely on you.
You know inside that, that's the truth.
You have to leave the past in the past,
Keep moving forward without looking back.
Live everyday,
As if it were your last.
Learn from your mistakes,
Learn to have faith,
Learn to be positive,
And love instead of hate.

The author's comments:
I normally spend my time always trying to help other people. I've come to the realization that when I help them, it meant what ever needed to be healed inside of myself, which everybody has something, that there was hope and that there was a possibility that the day would come where I too would heal. Thanks to my best friend Kim, who inspired this poem, I feel happy again. I couldnt have done it without her.
