Set in Stone

Our past affects us now.
Whether we choose to believe or not.
No matter how hard we try to avoid it.
It’s unavoidable.
We cannot conceal what’s in our hearts.
No matter how hard we try to cover it up.
It’s unconcealable.
We cannot pretend to be what we’re not.
No matter how many masks we don.
It’s inconceivable.
What happened before will always surface.
Our past is set in stone.
It’s irreversible.

Press Play

Unconstrained thoughts running wild through my mind as images of my future pass me by.

Questioning everything that’s gotten me to this point and wondering why things played out the way that they did.

Reminiscing over all the people I’ve given my heart to who felt it best be bruised instead.

Caring so much about meeting others’ expectations while neglecting to meet my own.

Hiding from the truth of my reality to get through every night and day.

Dying internally to please everyone in every way.

Remembering that God controls my fate and all I can do is press play.
