Poem About Letting Go Of The Past

I wrote this poem when I was 16 years old and I was going through a hard time with my friend. I want teens to know it's ok to write your thoughts down on paper.

The Past


Published by Family Friend Poems May 2008

You can't hold onto the past forever
But the past can hold onto you as long
As it wants to.

Someone once told me that letting go
Is easy; I know that's not true.

The memories still remain as a stain
On your heart that won't go away.

Don't let the past destroy you, for the past
Is just an old memory that won't go away till you start letting it go.
