As much as I’m an advocate of pushing on and forgetting the past, we need to face the fact that somethings you did in the past WILL SURELY have repercussions. Yes sometimes we want to just move forward and leave the old things behind, but many times the past comes back in form of consequences, consequences of what we did, and of course, we have to deal with it.
So this is a WAKE UP call to us not to create too many hunters and have to run too many races, the poem (below) is about the PAST, hopefully, it helps you live well in the PRESENT and lay proper foundations for the FUTURE.
Here’s to ‘The Hunter’…
Don’t be deceived
The past will haunt you
Just because you’ve moved on
Doesn’t mean the past is long gone
The past is like a bitter ex (X), that wants to know why (Y)
The past is like Yesterday that really wants to come to- Day
The past is like an angry man whose car you hit & run
He will chase you silly, he may even pull a gun
The past is like 3 abortions and an “unwanted pregnancy”
It stays close to you, it holds you like a grudge
The past is like bad results that won’t let your résumé go
Constantly wrestling your future, wanting to hide your glow
The past is like a tattoo of the name of your last boo
The sight of it brings regret, but what are you gonna do?
The past is like a hunter that just wants his game
The past is like ashes that is left by the flame
The past did not learn the lesson that you learnt
It wants you to pay, like a landlord demanding rent
So don’t be deceived & don’t be ignorant
Yes you’ve moved on, & Yes you have grown up
But no matter where you are, this remains true
The Past will surely come, with an aim to haunt You.
