These memories flooding my head
catching me off guard
running after my each tread
leaving me scarred
as I walk across this thread
that's leading me away from the past
which is longing to get ahead.
I'm struggling within
these thoughts whirling in my mind
trying to get past, yet I'm falling behind.
I'm falling off this thread
that keeps me going
sinking in this moment
from these thoughts over flowing
I'm not able to let go of this past
not able to chase time, moving so fast.
I'm living in my yesterday
as the world goes on
leaving me behind
with only this memory to lean upon.
