Leaving the past behind
Stars shine brightly to light the way,
of the ghosts haunting me every day.
Painful memories I can’t seem to shake,
plague me while asleep and awake.

The stars seemingly urge me to let go,
of the ghosts that hurt me so.
I strive to make happiness a goal,
to set free the mind and soul.

Stars shimmer down on me as I walk on,
and suddenly the ghosts are gone.
A smile comes to my lips as I realize then,
that I won’t be walking this trail again.
