Put the past away

Your fighting a war inside yourself
Your confused mind feels like a jail
Theres a shroud upon your soul
While you fight it takes control

You look for the light at the end of the tunnel
But your mind is like a large funnel
You took to much in, so now it's clogged
As your running through the endless fog

The past is gone, locked away and guarded
But the future, it can be parted
So live your life with a new meaning
Or you'll never begin healing

I really enjoyed this poem. I appreciate how it discusses the struggles we have within ourselves (which happens to me a lot) could you check my poems out? I'd love the feedback

I really enjoyed this. Was your ultimate point that the past is the past and the future can be different but if you want to change you must make changes?
