This week we are asked to use Forgotten as our prompt in the light of quotes.
“The richness of life lies in memories we have forgotten”
My life is enriched with events past and present
What happened yesterday or many days, years ago
May not all be present in my memory vividly
But it all contributes towards what my mind has matured into
Past experience color my vision from obscurity
What I have forgotten, lies in my subconscious, guiding my thoughts
How many times you’ve thought to yourself; “This is very important and I won’t forget it” only to completely forget it little while later!
There are tricks to remember things by associating them with other things/ items that we know or see around us. Memory can be notoriously faulty and unreliable, specially when we need it the most. I find it most useful to write important information down. The only drawback is that I forget where!
Memories of things unpleasant
Hurtful and damaging linger on
At the slightest provocation
They raise their ugly heads to taunt us
It needs a strong will to let go of them
To forget what opens the wounds we are trying to heal
Leave those memories in the past, where they belong
