There is no running from the past 

For its worn in our minds like a cast 

Reminders that leaves us aghast 

While presenting what we want, at long last 


Patiently, look it in the eye 

Don’t run away, just give it a try

Reminders are still your ally 

Fear isn’t a source in which to comply 


Claim the victory within reach

Allow reminders to always teach

Find new purposes to beseech 

All information is for us to leech
