Anifar is a poetry lover and she would like to share a poem with you.

The past is like a scar, forget about it and live the present.

The past is like a scar, forget about it and live the present.


Do you have a past in your life? Automatically yes. Everyone has some event or events that happened to them some years or days back. This is what we call your past. This events that happened can be either sweet to remember, or even bitter that you cannot dare to let them come over your mind again. Most people dwell on the past so much forgetting that the past can harm and make them not to progress. Our past is only good if we learn how to use it to our benefit. If we use it negatively , it will destroy us and our beloved ones. It is high time we let go and be happy. The past is like a learning platform never to repeat our mistakes or change our behavior while sweet memories are always good to remember because they put a smile on our faces. Take your time to clear your mind and work on your past to let go and prosper.

“I have learned that if you must leave a place that you have lived in and loved and where all your yesteryears are buried deep, leave it any way except a slow way, leave it the fastest way you can. Never turn back and never believe that an hour you remember is a better hour because it is dead. Passed years seem safe ones, vanquished ones, while the future lives in a cloud, formidable from a distance.”

— Beryl Markham, West with the Night

Burry The Past

The past is like a movie that

can easily be recalled

Especially when it is sweet,

it puts a smile on our faces

But when it is bitter, it makes

us angry and destroys our

inner feelings

It makes us feel left out

and sad at the same time.

The bitter past tends to

stay in our minds

It entagles the mind making

us feel hepless

The people who wronged

us appear in our minds

as if ghosts.

Tears rolling down our faces

making us regret why

the world was so cruel to us

It gives a headache whenever we

visualize the ugly scenes and acts

Revenge stubs our hearts making

us feel like they deserve

a payback.

The past should not be dwelt on,

It stops our progress

It makes us feel unfortunate

It makes us curse the wrong doers

It hinders forgiveness and creates


It's like a scar that never fades away.

The bitter past is evil,

It can make us kill for revenge

It can make us go mad

It can destroy us and break us

into pieces

It should be burried and left behind.

Even though it may shape our future,

It should be used as a stepping stone

to another level

It is there to make us progress and not

to continue backsliding.

Take the past as a learning and

awakening platform

That is when it will help us

That is when we will know the

reason why we went through it

It is when we will appreciate and

embrace it

It's all about what we need to throw away

and what to embrace.

That is the past!
