Moving Beyond the Past

The burning in my soul So hot it feels like the flames are raging Bitter Anger Rage Cruel intent I know the past is gone Yet it still Fester's Trying not to dwell I'm being eaten alive one word at a time Yet if you focus on pain you die Emotionally, Mentally, Spiritually Old wounds decades of the past still fresh Reached straight to my core The poison infected now forms my soul Ice over my heart calms my flames Til it's almost gone I need to let the past be so I'm not in darkness I'm reaching for the shining light My past moves on in my future I now dwell

Hi Krissy. You are on the right path. Time alone does not heal all wounds. How we handle the process in the time tunnel also helps. T(time) + P(process)=H(healing).
