ghosts

today i was visited by the ghost of christmas past
telling me that i will be able to change events
in favor of my life lighting up
that guaranteed i would be taken care of
but then those memories will be gone
my skin would be less calloused and more frail
my eyes would not be able to communicate
with just one glance i will not be able to feel it
in others that need to be lifted others will
not be able to feel it in me
i will not feel free
i will feel lonely
without my sisters and brothers
who's heart beats with mine
sure it would be more peaceful
but it would have so much less adventure
