The shadows of your past


They tend to be a hangover
like some ghosts that never leave you quite in peace
but torture you by awkward memories
of how everything went wrong
by no one’s fault and least of all your own,
but still you can feel guilt for your own misadventures;
but these hangovers of unsettling experiences
are in fact your greatest assets,
insights into darkness is clairvoyance,
knowledge of anatomy of tragedy is wisdom,
and you always rise above whatever goes against you.
Nothing that attacks and sabotages you
can damage you but only mould your character
and edify your soul with the enrichment
of a deeper darkness and awareness of your soul.
