Stop With Self-Imprisonment (a poem)

“Yes, we should learn from our mistakes, but we don’t have to live in them.”
-Christy Wright

Stop revisiting the past
Stop reliving shame
Stop with pressing your own bruises
Self-inflicted pain

Stop with self-imprisonment
You’ve already served time
Stop the reel of failure, change the
Channel in your mind

Stop rehashing old mistakes
Stop with keeping score
The God of all the earth says He’ll
Remember them no more

Stop the graceless critic you were
Never meant to be
Stop the late night torturing
Go now and be free

“He who has repented of his sins, the same is forgiven, and I, the Lord, remember them no more”
-Doctrine & Covenants 58:42
