Yesterday's Dust

You are not
dying because
of your past.
You are dying
you keep
reliving it.

It is a window
covered with
yesterday’s dust.
You can not
see today
for its smudges.

A history book
will remain
in your memory.
Let healing
edit its pain
by forgiving

I think the best way to understand "forgiving yourself" is moving on. Good one.
