A Thing of The Past
We all have our darkest moments. A nightmare that brought us trauma. A ghastly past that we want to forget. A frightening experience that has brought us tears and pain. A scar we always bear. A burden that forbids us to be genuinely happy.
Most, if not all, of us wish to have a time machine or a special power that will enable us to perform a miracle and erase some events in our past. But it’s simply not possible. So our wish will remain a wishful thinking. No one can go back in time and change the past, that’s one thing we’re all sure of. But we have today and with it, we can create a better future.
If only action is easy as how we say it, then there’d be no problem. We can simply forget the past and move forward. But truth be told: it requires a great effort to realize that. It’s a long process. Every day is a struggle. You have to be strong enough to stand firmly on your ground without looking back, no matter how it haunts you. There are mornings when waking up is simply painful. There are memories that don’t only bug your mind but punch your stomach to make you puke your guts out. The montages of the past is utterly awful. Remembering your happy times together up to the moment when things are becoming complicated and unmanageable, it’s a bitter pill to swallow. It’s when reality bites you hard and you see that you’re all alone now. The one who promised you forever is now a ghost of the past. The one who told you he loves you left you hanging. The man whom you trusted with all your heart lied to you, cheated on you, denied you, hid you and used you for the entire moment you’ve been together. The man who used to be your brother, bestfriend and lover is no longer the man you used to know. He has thrown you away for somebody else. And even though you want to chase the bond you once had, it doesn’t exist anymore nor it did.
