Vergangenheitbewaeltigung is a ridiculously long word.
Despite its confusing spelling,
It’s deep in a few ways.
It means to come to terms with your past.

Maybe the sesquipedalian who invented the word wanted to,
Relate the complexity of the word
To the struggles of accepting
What made you you today?

You don’t have to agree with the things you’ve done,
But don’t bury those memories
Because at one time that choice
Was exactly what you wanted to make.
“Those who forget their past are condemned to repeat it.”
