Change that which haunts you

We hold so tightly
Cling for dear life
To that which is past
To our history
Meant to teach us
Not to bind us to it
Do we fear loss of identity?
Mistakes made then
Held against us now
By others or by ourselves
Be the student
Learn and move forward
To graduate this plane
Wiser, free and at peace
If errors in your way haunt
Dispel the ghost by change
Need not wait until tomorrow
For today is the time.
