Forward by Valerie Parente
You don’t have to explain yourself
The past is in the past
It’s time to enjoy life again
So don’t you dare look back.
When you want to regress
Just remember the fact
That love is supposed to feel good
It’s not a battle to be had.
You romanticized the struggle
you let the feelings drag
because it felt safter in this circle
when you ran another lap.
There will be moments of doubt
You’ll be tempted to go off-track
But if you keep moving foward
Then you’re on the right path.
You’re not running away from problems
You’re making a future that will last
Those old feelings were addicting
And there’s no time to relapse.
