There Are Things In Your Past

There are things in your past you would rather forget
And there are things in your past you will always regret
And there are things in your past you remember with pride
Your past follows you from it you cannot hide
For as long as your gift of memory you retain
Your past is with you and with you will remain
For as long as you live until the day you will die
That your past lives in your memory is not a lie
But the now is all that does matter in truth one can say
And at the stroke of midnight the past will be today
There are things in your past you would rather not talk about
That have sowed in your mind a lifetime of self doubt
And there are things in your past you remember with pride
Your past follows you from it you cannot hide.

Beautifully expressed. There are many poems on this site about the past, time, and memory, but this is clearly one of the best!
