Of Our Own Making

Thoughts create and alter

A memory is a memory

Of the last time we remembered

It’s no wonder how easy it is

To forget what really happened

Better to be stuck, I suppose

In our own version of things

Than to wrap ourselves

In regret, shame, the guilt

The realization that this place

Is exactly where I, myself

Have brought me

  1. So powerful and strong! A story so well said. Love the description and the gentle use of wonderful, flamboyant words. Please keep writing. Peace and greetings from Sui generis 💛💛
