Moving on…

Shared with OctPoWriMo Day 5, Flash 55 at The Imaginary Garden and UBC Day 5.


today, I found a memory,
it hovered near my eyes,
beseeched me to relive it,
in its thoughts, feel high.

forget where I am now,
and travel back in time,
to smile at the sorrows,
that I once called mine.

“then, you can move on”,
β€œonly then”, it said again,
β€œcan you forget the pain.”

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.

  1. beautiful poem…it is difficult to forget the pain..memories creep in and hide in places least expected only to surface at weird times and places.

  2. It is the most difficult thing, to relive painful memories and end up smiling at them. I do not think the pain ever goes away, but you learn that you like smiling more than feeling the pain, and you slowly become stronger and learn to leave the pain behind.

    • I think smiling at them gives you the strength to smile at the road past them too. The pain, or the memories, they might not go away, but they don’t hold you back after you smile. Yes, you become stronger, Jb.
