the past

How do I liberate myself from the past? Is it possible? I can feel it weighing me down, pulling me under… but I don’t know how to escape. It dictates every aspect of my life. I’m it’s prisoner.

I wish there was a magic switch I could flip to be free, once and for all. Who am I without the past though? I am who I am today because of yesterday & all the yesterday’s before that.

Maybe that’s why I haven’t figured out how to let go… because I don’t know who I am without it.
