Slowly learning that nostalgia isn’t such a bad thing, remembering the past and their precious moments is okay. On nights the mind may wander back to those moments for comfort. The past is a constant reminder of what progress, of change within the mind and the heart. The key is to use these memories as inspiration and teaching tools to be a better person today. Do not become locked in nostalgia but let it teach you.
These are just a couple of notes I’ve been jotting down for inspiration. Some time this year or at least the beginning of next year I plan to publish my first full length book of poetry dealing with the idea of the past and how much power it holds over the present. I am also working on a chapbook so this will all serve as inspiration.
