Remember

So many things on my mind I need to write them down
The fear that I might forget is sometimes overwhelming

Must remember
Don’t forget
What if?

Don’t be afraid
It will be okay
It always works out
Or does it?

The emotion
The feelings
Me.
All I remember is me

The way I was and the places I’ve been
The places I don’t want to return to

Do details matter
To you
To me?

I am scared
Of not remembering
Like once before
When I was smaller
and life was pain
and love
and terror
and sadness

And now I remember the beauty
But not then

I fought hard for the beauty.

Call your fears and they will come to you

    I can totally relate to the first 5 lines. The progression of this poem is really wonderful, and I love the impact that it has. Beautifully written! 🙂

      So encouraging, thank you very much. These last few days I have realised that whether I am good or bad at it, whether anyone reads and enjoys my work or not, for good or ill, I have to write… or I just moved on from giving myself a hard time about giving energy to something I truly enjoy, dunno. 😉
