At one time, it seems that we all forget the things we thought we’d left behind.

But then, sooner or later, comes the inevitable instant where everything flashes right in front of us, as if calling us to settle things..

Sometimes we just tend to skip them. But there are moments where we cannot deny what’s facing us.

And that’s where we start to think everything over. Only then, yes, only then we’ll be held prisoners of our pasts. We can struggle with all our inner strengths. But when the time is over, there is no end to it.

And then it’s up to the light we see, whether we’ll sink deeper and free us, or whether we’ll hang on there.. hang on and surrender.
