Run on.

The past taps me on the shoulder

Ignored more oft than not

It’s one thing to learn a lesson, but don’t let it gnaw

Don’t let it draw you in and eat you from inside

Take what you must and take the rest in stride

I’m not saying “Hide.”

I don’t like to live that way

You shouldn’t have to

Stop wallowing in shame

Stop cursing long dead days that left just as they came

Don’t let shame run on like the rhymes on this page
