Spending years without making memories
Telling oneself it won’t matter due arrogance
Believing that growth isn’t chronological,
That time can be skipped, avoiding aberrance.
Not knowing it may cause emptiness in soul
A void that is indeed older than the time
A man must embrace past to move forward
The way, roots grow first to build the stem
Because some things have a higher meaning
And if past is unembraced, then it plagues
The time gone by is a dangerous thing if
Ignored, it doesn’t catch up, it overtakes.
