Letting go

Letting go

A Poem by Anna

they will always remain alive in your mind
some can be soft like a breeze in a green meadow
others can be cruel like the wind on a high mountaintop
we hold onto both as if our life depends on them
but do they?
what if instead of letting both inhabit your mind, you toss the painful memories away
make room for the soft breeze not the strong shivering winds
because if we do that, negativity will dissipate a little
and the world can become a beautiful sight that draws positive attitudes
the harsh truth is no one will listen
because sadly the memories we fear the most are the ones we remember
like when a person breaks your heart
you cling to the memories of their lips on yours or how their hand fit so perfectly to yours
but these will just cause so much more icy biting wind
stored deep away is the memory of the first day you learned to read
this is the feeling of accomplishment and its the polar opposite of the hurt and pain from a broken relationship
so why do the memories that haunt us the most become the ones that are as clear as a summer day
yet the loved ones become buried in snow during the harshest winter
there would be so much less crime and shame
and so much more more laughter and compassion
why is it so hard to destroy the dark memories?
because humanity cannot sadly survive without hurt

Memories ...no matter the ratio of good to bad inherent in us all is our disposition or aversion to how we view life half empty/full perhaps your poem is a message to all... what is inside?

It bites right off from the start and just keeps pouring in with the lamentation as the lines grasp you as a reader in this verse...
