Your kind of poetry which is simply written but hardly understood.

I don't know why?
That I always doubt and afraid to try,
My thoughts are holding me, can't get away from it
Too vivid to forget and strong enough to beat

It's somehow destructive, pointing out my heart
Things might get risky, I don't want to fall apart
To let go is so hard, it could be a sad nostalgia
I don't want to repeat it, I'm eaten up by paranoia.

Everything is confusing, can't read it clearly
I'm not getting it yet but I know this is dearly
I just don't understand why I keep on coming back
This memories that keep me from taking the right track.

I want to get out, I want to start once more,
To be healed completely and to open a new door
It's the only way, I guess, for things to get better
And allow myself to see the reasons to be happier.

There is chance for us all to always start over in as much as we are still breathing.

It really is hard to let go of the past but there is still a way to move forward. Thank you so much Miss Lorna

An emotional poem which made me think of the fear of moving on which can hold us in our past, clinging to our memories. Finding the courage and having faith in yourself does not always come easy, however, it is the only way to break free. Excellent poem.

Yes Miss Brenda, I agree with you; I realized, memories have taken a great part of our lives, it will leave us lessons for us to be a better person.Thank you so much.

This speaks of the turmoil we all face at some point in our lives.

It is do hard to start again when memories are fresh in our thoughts. There is no completely healed for a part of these memories will live on inside you.

Taking a step out of your comfort zone is the right direction.

Nice write.
