Debriefing

 

 

The past is safe

Because we have lived it

We have survived

It has chewed and re-chewed us

And spat us out

We no longer fear it

We’re not in its hands anymore

It is in our hands to do what we will with it

To show it a kindness in remembering

Or a cruelty in forgetting

Indeed, all our power is in the present

We’re now able to let it or not let it

Haunt us or frighten us or embolden us or anything

We choose now

Because we have borne the past

And are now born of it
