The gentle, yet subtle reminders.
They are all around me.
From the car at the 4-way stop to the lady at the store with her kids.
It is unavoidable.
All of these events stir up feelings from my past. I feel as though these events and occurrences are real, yet they are just a reminder of what I remember life to be.
I am here now creating a new today with new memories not those of my past.
Yet, I still feel the ties to the old. These memories do not cease to be. They are fresh in my mind and draw me back yearning to be made new again.
It is a struggle between past and present and what I yearn to be.
Where do I find the balance? Where do I need to be? How do I move forward and find peace?
Where do I belong?
