Past

If the past is the past
then why does it affect our present.
Wether we take the past as a lesson or a burden
it still affects our future.
Our past shapes who we are
who we become
and our views on life.
The thing about the past 
is that it doesnt stay in the past.
We carry it on and on through life.
My past is my present and my future.
