The Essence Of My Being

My past is the essence of my being.

Without my past I am nothing.

Because it has shaped me into what I am today,

I’m afraid of letting my past away…

It reminds me that I still have a long way.

After every sunset comes a new dawn, a new day!!


So, cheers to the world,

Be proud of who you are.

Change only for the better,

And don’t leave your past afar…


How I realized it, is a long story…

I was basking in past glory…

When I tumbled and fell down,

I couldn’t help but frown,

At the obstacles that steered my road,

And made it impossible that I strode.

It forced me down the memory lane,

And made me face my fears and pain.

I met my fears with a smile on my face,

And said goodbye to my pains with grace.


After I was healed and well,

 I had stories to tell.


I had waved goodbye to my past,

Realizing, my present was what was going to last.

And there lay my future,

Which I had still to nurture.
