into this night i wander

And one by one they left...

if who we are now is the sum total of what has happened to us
then what happens when we realize that our past was a lie?
sometimes you have to revise what you thought was your own history
reexamine those things that you thought were carved into stone
accept that your impressions at the time may have been wrong
more importantly
accept that who you are is simply who you are
that doesn't change merely because you've realized
that some important part of your life
wasn't what you thought it was
wasn't what you hoped it was
simply wasn't
revisionist history doesn't change who you are now
