So this is something I wrote the other day whilst listening to music that I decided to turn into a poem. You know how you sometimes hear a piece of music and it reminds you of a memory or emotion you’d almost forgotten? That’s kind of what inspired this. Anyway, I hope you enjoy it. 🙂
Emotions Are Like Memories
Sometimes, I forget this feeling.
This feeling of sadness, of sorrow,
The pain that came from all the years of trials,
The hardships that seemed to be thrown at me
One after the other.
Of course, compared to some,
My problems were miniscule.
But that’s the thing about problems;
No matter how big or small the problem really is,
It’s still a problem.
It’s something you have to overcome.
Some people give up before it’s even started.
Others shake it off,
And get their life back on track in a manner of days,
Then there’s the people like me
The people who have to fight,
To get back to that point,
Back to that time when they can sit back and say,
It took me a long time to get back there.
Some days, it would seem as if it were almost in reach,
Before slipping through my fingers once more.
Some days, it would take every ounce of motivation I had
Just to get out of bed.
It took time, but somehow, I made it back.
However, it’s not always ‘smooth sailing’, as some say.
Emotions are like memories
They can never be entirely forgotten
And sometimes, the smallest things can remind us of the past.
Things like a photograph, or something someone says…
… Or even a song.
I guess I’ve been reflecting on this for a while now, the whole idea of happiness, which is what drove me to write that post, ‘Smile’, a few weeks back. Maybe it’s because I can confidently say that right now, I’m happy with my life, and I feel like I’m at the end of one chapter and about to start another. Who knows?
Anyway, sorry if all these reflections have been boring you to death… Hopefully they’re at least a little interesting. 😛
Forgotten Tales Update: The Untold Tales is taking soooooooo long to edit, I kid you not – every time I go to edit it, I feel like I walk away with more work to do. I keep adding extra details in that I probably should’ve added the first time, such as setting and character descriptions. I haven’t forgotten (no pun intended) about it though, and I’m trying my hardest to have it ready to re-release (alongside a new part) as soon as possible. 😉
Thanks for reading,
