Some darkness from my past

    I was looking through one of my old journals tonight searching for one particular piece I wrote many years ago. I haven't found it yet but I came across the following. It made me sad to remember....

    My memory proves my existence but the only thing I know for certain is that to dream is to want and to want is to need; erase the dream, let go of the want and there will be no need. I want nothing of all I used to need except to forget that I used to dream

    Dreams I have never lost. Dreams make me smile, and give me hope. I do have some Nightmares too. They serve as warnings or lessons to heed to survive. Regrets, I have few. I am the net result of all that went before to get me to this point. Regrets are left behind that last door I passed through to get to this precise point, time, and place. Awake, Eyes wide open anxious for the next experience whatever it will be. Tac

    And when dreams are erased, all one has left are memories...

    LOL this was a very dark time in my life. I've revisited that neighborhood a time or two since but I try to keep the visits as short as possible

    Memories are what makes us human, be it good ones, or ones we wish we could erase. They are the foundation of our learning... and the makeup of our being. We are what we have seen, heard, felt and realized.... like water running through the hand. You may try to stop it... but it will find a way to mold/change & influence you on it's course through your life.

    I think I have come to appreciate my childhood more than most people when I hear the horror stories told by others. I'm grateful to have escaped such a hard start in life and always sad to know that others have not been so fortunate

    LOL I just got "the look" that reminds me of cold steel - the same thought was probably in my dad's head but "the look" got the same message across very well.

    I no longer have dreams.
    When I did they came true sometimes in a matter of seconds. Life is so much easier now.

    We are all a product of our experiences. Whether we let the negative pull us down or use it to propell us up is all a matter of our character.

    I've had some good experiences and some bad experiences and they have all shaped me in some way.
