Revised edition

Dedicated to those unfortunate ones who are always haunted by their murky past. I know forgetting past is near to impossible but I just want to cheer them up and give them hope to enlighten their soul.


Don’t curse your past,
whatever they be
let it be as it is
don’t wake it up
let it dwell in peace
no matter how murky
your past may be
but if you do curse
then you will loose
your present
and would never
catch your future too.

If you curse,
your past
your present
will be cloudy
and your future
will be soaked.
So learn
from the past
but never ever
keep past in the mind
if you want to achieve
something great in life.

The more,
you remember
your past, the weaker
it would
make your heart
so please
burn your past
and march
ahead with life
then only my friend
you will get the sunlight
in your waterlogged life.

So please,
don’t worry
about your past
let it fade into
the light of your present
but don’t curse your past
whatever they be
let it be as it is
don’t wake it up
let it dwell in peace
no matter how murky
your past may be.

How deeply this has touched me today. Bhuwan, you do exist! All the proof is the ability to reach into someone else's heart. Thank you.

There is the fact that what is done is done. One cannot change that fact...but one can learn from it and be a better person for having experienced it.

Great write Bhuwan

We must put the past into perspective. Learn from it and move on. Wonderful write, my friend.

such sage advice, Bhuwan...looking back too often indeed keeps one from moving forward, but I tell you: it is very difficult to let go of some things...

thanks, my friend, for a valuable reminder

Yes, cursing the murky past is a worthless effort. I think though that forgetting the past, or letting it go, is an impossibility, and rightly so. It is that very murkiness which allows a writer to write the things he/she does: remembering the bitterness of lost love; the sadness at the loss of a friend or loved one; the joy of a Spring day and the calm satisfaction of Autumn.

Keep the memories close, my friend, but do not let them rule you. Rule them instead.

I agree...indeed! You and I have a common inspire and encourage humanity. Each individual can take what we need from every experience, and become wiser; rather than dwell upon something bad in any experience only to become foolish. A choice.... Bravo!

Very powerful Bhuwan.
Sometimes it's easier
said than done...

One must face the ghost
of the past, come to
terms with it.
than they should be
able to move forward..
If one simply buries it
deep inside, than it's
always there to haunt

Excellent write my friend.

Congrats, Mr. Editor...
Looking forward to
working with you... :)
