Moving backward into the future

Are we not doomed to have history repeat itself?

Once we make that one mistake, it will keep coming back
Repeating itself over and over until in the end
We realize our life was just one big cycle of mistakes.

Circles have no beginning and no end.

The future holds a vision of hope for us
Until we fall in the relentless groove of repetitiveness
Where no matter how we try to escape it
Only a scratch will make the needle jump
And scratching certain itches ruins our effort.

Can’t we learn to love ourselves?

Our mistakes are ultimately driven by our lack of love
Not for others, but for ourselves.
We have to start spreading that love within
Before we can spread it to the world.

Love one another. As I have loved you, so you also should love one another. John 13:34-35
