Could you be me?
The past plays a very important role in our lives. Some say, forget the past it is gone; it exists no more. I say, the past lives with us every day, every moment. We feel it in our consciousness; we hear it in our thoughts; and it watches from the darkness, we relive it in our dreams.
Without a past how then do we have a present, and what would bear our future. Dare we permit past experiences to overwhelm, control, dominate; should we dwell only on the things we DREAD, LOVE… NO? We must never forfeit the memories dear to us; those we protect those we shelter; these solidify us, make us whole, and LIKE IT OR NOT.
My childhood begins normally, but then something happens. I uncover something terrible, something hurtful.
