Val enjoys writing his own style of what resembles poetry, just hoping to catch someone's heart on the same page.
People go forward in life. Bitterness and grudges and resentments only poison it.
-- David Furnish
There are moments, and they could be many
of mind's reruns that should have been gone
some old memories more painful than any
like nothing is healed and keeps going on.
Then before we know it life stops in its tracks
with the gloom of that memory spoiling fun
as if it's piling up all our misses and lacks
we obsess over what was said and done.
As if every passing face is looking down on us
recognizing that grudge tormenting our heart
despite all clumsy attempts to hide the fuss
it keeps poisoning life with its every part.
Could we just let it go once and for all
with fantoms of past, their dark shadows
allowing ourselves to take that happy stroll
with daisies and butterflies on sunny meadows.
So don't touch those wounds, allow them to heal
life doesn't insist on a taste of some desserts
but so much more joy is still there to feel
so put a balsam on all those hurts.
