instead of just remember

instead of just remember

A Poem by Medium Dave
"

.

"
like the moment you see the pattern
and the world becomes a picture. . . 

if you learn to see the good
before you see what's wrong

this entire thing gets easier

if you learn yourself to think
instead of just remember

Featured Review

I like to say hope for the best, prepare for the worst. I think there is equal value in both remembering and thinking, seeing the good and the bad. The tricky part is not focusing more on one or another. If we see the good, but remember the bad, it helps us appreciate more that which we have good and if we think, will keep us from repeating the mistakes that led to the bad.
You've shared a piece of wisdom here that, if we are thinkers, we will use to our advantage.

Always remember... we don't have to memorize so much if we remember how to think first.

If only to think and not remember, or to remember
to think ... there, real and unreal are the same.
The human as author thinks too much, or remembers
what they were thinking ... myth?

I'm skeptical of my thoughts ...
because to remember is a heavy load.

Nice poem, nicely delivered!

I think you have to dig deeper to find the good that is there, especially nowadays. However it is there if you choose to look. You don't have to search far to see what's bad, we appear to be surrounded by it. The art is trying to get a balanced perspective and not be weighed down by the negatives. So I guess you need to remember that and think to look more positively. Does that sound like garbage?

What I got from this was that we remember something how we want to remember it but when we really think about that moment, it might be different. Like when a group of people remember the same memory different.
It made me think and I really enjoyed it.

"if you learn to see the good
before you see what's wrong"......love those lines.

my grandfather we lived with all my life said to me from an early age,
treat people how you would like to be treated and always see the good in people, not the bad.

What I have taken from this is:
Remembering requires feelings and emotions. Even cells within the human body can remember certain events, feelings, reactions, like when you had the flu or chicken pox. " Memory cells ".
Thinking does not require emotions or feelings, kind of like a calculator. It is more calculating and goal oriented, but can also be about a time that has passed by.....
and in that, one can think about how a situation may have a different outcome than the previous attempt.

That was a superb review. Thank you for that.
This is what everyone gotta learn, depression comes just in the opposite way. But here here we aim to be happy and walk towards life. :)
