Tripping Down Memory Lane: Introduction


as I walk towards my future,

I can’t help but trip over my past

cracks in my street and knives in my back

I need to get through this, and fast


so I introduce you to memory lane

a destination in my mind

to forgive, forget and maybe achieve

personal growth of some kind


while the past is behind me,

my thoughts are still active

engulfing each idea I have

and spewing out the unattractive


my cycle stays vicious

but I’m trying to break it

pouring my heart out on paper

we’ll see if I can take it
