when the slightest of something
brings back the flood of memories and emotions,
feelings of guilt and remorse,
when you don’t know what you should be doing
or what you are doing,
when you look in the mirror and all you ever see
are the scars of every failure
and the you that you used to be..
Tell your heart to beat again..
Close your eyes and breathe it in..
Let the shadows fall away..
You’ll live to love another day..
Yesterday’s a closing door
But you don’t live there anymore..
So say goodbye to where you’ve been
and tell your heart to beat again..
More than forgiving others,
we need to forgive ourselves for everything,
only then can we keep our hearts open and loving..
Just breathe it in..
