Forced to relive every moment, each and every joy, every pain,
They wash over me like muddy waters, they pollute and stain,
Through the years they have weighed on me like a ball and chain,
I am amazed that over the years I have remained fully sane,
But slowly, over time, the cursed memories have begun to wane.
Over many years my knowledge, and my reasoning have grown,
Seeds of understanding have sprouted where they were sown,
I am wiser from the wonders that I was allowed to be shown,
But have been left with too many regrets for which I must atone,
In this I cannot walk with others , but must journey all alone,
For this is the long path for which I must travel on my own.
