After all that has gone wrong,
over these past few years,
it's impossible not to be a little bitter,
and sometimes overcome by my fears.
But things are getting better,
now everything is fine,
every so often things are said,
somebody crosses the line.
I'm not gonna let it get me down.
I'm through with that for good.
I'm ready to just shake it off,
like i know I should.
Being briefly upset it one thing,
and thats all fine and dandy,
but carrying it with you is something else,
I promise it will NEVER come in handy.
You have to let go of your baggage,
so you can move on to a better time,
There is a place for memories,
but letting them overtake you is a crime.
