Past, Present, Future

Past, Present, Future

A Poem by Serenity Faith

Actions speak louder than words, and for most who are in capable of change, they have the sad fate of History repeating itself.

It's hard to forget
they say past is the past
Memories are like movies
life's a play, people the cast
oh the love
how much I loved you
Even when I made mistakes
my love was always true
but what did I love?
Only time would tell
we skip to the present
where I tripped and fell
I fell in love with the act
like watching Shakespeare
A Juilet yearning for a Romeo
Love, hate, a hope, a tear
wasted life, wasted breath
But I thank you, I'm stronger
nothing more, nothing less
I yearn for love no longer
the future is yet to come
I don't fear what it brings
Life, children, death, lover
Prepared for all these things
I'm no longer angry
at what's been done to me
but when nothing changes
An angry mother I will be
The past, present, and future
one comes and then goes
each action causes reaction
Move the dam, the river flows

Author's Note

Serenity Faith
I used to be able to take a beating, let anyone and everyone walk where they wanted to. Pathetic, I know. So I changed. I refuse to let History repeat. And becoming a mother. I will not ever tolerate someone walking all over my children. They will not be stepped on and led to believe that it's okay. And an "I'm sorry", doesn't fix the wounds. Mental, Emotional, or Physical. Let go of the past, present yourself in the present, and make way for one hell of a future!

A courageous write. Let it be, let it go, let it melt like winter snow. Moving on is best. Good poem. Nicely expressed emotions.
