Yes, it does matter
Yes, it does matter where I came from and whom I used to be because without my past I would have never become whom I became. Those people who forget their mistakes in the past are doomed to repeat those same mistakes again in the future. No matter who or even what you were matters not to me for it is who you are today that matters the most. We are only human so making mistake is part of life it is how you address them that define who you are now.
Poet Richard M Knittle Jr
