Dear Past

Our paths diverge.

Thank you for all the lessons,

through which we passed.

You’re stressing, it’s time to

we part ways. I don’t need you anymore

I don’t have time to live the old way,

retrograde patterns. I leave it

and with unnecessary “baggage”. I’m growing

I don’t want to stumble anymore, I fall

into the abyss of unnecessary mistakes.

I’m not the same, I’ve changed.

Don’t try to make me feel guilty.

I don’t want your confirmations, advice, that’s enough.

Let’s say goodbye as befits,

no false pathos, thank you, I love you.

We’re breaking up now, don’t call me, I’m enough

resistant to your challenges. Goodbye, I’m moving on.
