I've been here before

Last Update: August 27, 2016

It's a lot like dejavu,

To be where I have been.

Something so familiar,

Between my now and then.

Some pieces are so different,

I'm not sure of where I stand.

But memories come flooding back,

Of events from on this land.

I've been here in lifetime,

I've stood right here before.

This time I am smiling,

I'm ready for this war.

I look back and I see it,

The lesson I had missed.

Whether it was something big,

Or something like a kiss.

Every time I end up,

In places that I know.

I either have to grow,

Or learn to let it go.

It is most certainly shared from my heart and experiences. Everytime I face things more than once I go "oh crap. What did I miss?"
