“When we are tired, we are attacked by ideas we conquered long ago.” ― Friedrich Nietzsche
I wonder why when the past is talked about, it is done so with such sadness and grief. I believe each one of us has been created for a reason, whether to become a leader, or bring up an amazing family to increase the number of humans in this world or write about it…
But why when any one of us does talk about their past, regardless of who they became today, I usually see a glimpse of sorrow or betrayal in their eyes…why?
Ironic enough, I now understand…“What is the past but what we choose to remember?” ― Amy Tan
In our pasts, we dreamed and longed to be what we wish to become in the present we are living.Somehow that past calls back to us to meet and see if that dream has been fulfilled and often what we wanted then has changed and we no longer desire it, but it still bring an awkward silence between both times; our past and our present.
Hence, it makes you wonder if what you have chosen for your present is right and when will you be able to meet your future to find out? Probably when your present becomes your past again, and the circles continue to move.
My past called on me yesterday and we had a long talk, in a couple of silent minutes. She wondered what happened to me and I wondered what was I thinking then, too foolish I said!
All through it, I remembered all the beautiful memories, nothing sad much and all the amazing friends, people, acquaintances I have met along the way.I have been loved and continue to be and I have created joy as much as I can, and will continue.So hello future, are you ready for me?!
Although I would like our world to change
It helps me to appreciate
Those nights and those dreams
But, my friend, I’d sacrifice all those nights
If I could make the Earth and my dreams the same
The only difference is
To let love replace all our hate
So let’s go there
Let’s make our escape
Come on, let’s go there
Let’s ask can we stay?
