the past

A line on the first page hit me. ...

it's wrong what they say about the past, I've learned, about how you can bury it. Because the past claws its way out.

How very true. No matter how hard you try to bury the past, memories are jolted by people you meet, places, sights, smells. A glimpse into the buried past will always peek its way out, whether you like it or not.

I agree. No matter how we try to bury the past, someday we will see something that causes us to reminisce it.

This is especially so if we have done something wrong.

At least, I never forgot the 'crimes' I commited. They 'haunt' me.

Hee hee.. memories can actually make us or break us, yeah? They also serve as a reminder not to commit the wrong things again, but to better ourselves in the present and future.

Then again, we can laugh at the past, relieved that it's well, in a way, gone though not forgotten.
