some memories

you can’t wipe away

you can’t forget

only remember


nothing you do

can erase them

they remain

in your mind



try to

black them out

but they are


they cling on


than your will


forcing you

to hold on

they persist

in reminding you

every single day


some memories

you can let go

you can give up

never remember


but other memories

don’t let you forget

don’t let you go

only remember
