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
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. 😉
