The decorators of my mind chose coloured wallpaper to cover the halls of my past.
The walls would haunt me with their many holes, tears, and scratches..
But with colour
I was made to forget what was ugly,
and see that it is now beautiful.
There are lights being installed now,
and I see clearly into the depths of the hallway.
I am able to open the door between present and past
and move through its arches to look back with no regret.
