Sometimes remembering is good

Not what is remembered,

but what you give your mind as food.

I have memories that make me cringe-

Memories I wish existed only in my head-

Memories that say what I should’ve done instead.

Like past tense

All the flashbacks are gone

Scripted and acted scenes that can’t be undone

the pleasant ones make me smile

the unpleasant ones make me wonder why.

But all the while, it teaches me.

It makes me grateful.

It shows me how things have changed.

How I have changed … how times change.

 

Sometimes remembering is good

Even when what is remembered isn’t.
