A sombre read but exquisite observational prose. How often as we get older do memories seek to trouble us. Often unfounded as we become too harsh critics of our own storyline. As always an emotional write with a message of hope that there is light beyond the rain and that the truth will set you free. A great write and message. Milly x
How can a sonnet be simple? Almost ironic for me personally :)
Let me explain myself, choosing to write a formed poem for a certain topic or in here emotions, means a part of you doesn’t see this simple. And the emotions here are complicated.
I think it doesnt have to do with aging or anything, we all feel this once in a while.
Forgiving ourselves...forgiving those that hurt us, those that keep us tethered to the past, is definitely one of the hardest things to do. But as you've stated, once you're able to let go and "discard the chains" that load evaporates. Wonderful!
