Status: Finished  |  Genre: Memoir  |  House: Booksie Classic

A short poem, or as some may call it a small amount of words, grouped together to create a touching and relatable thing. :)

Memories, there are good ones and bad ones

Happy and sad

Yet all of them are different

No matter what they are about

Whether both the times I got a shot

Or the first two times i got an one hundred on a test

All so different

Yet so precious.

Both times i heard that my only two uncles passed on,

Only five years apart.

The first i was a kid, sad but it didn't mean much, i didn't understand

And the second, the sobbing and thinking beyond compare with other memories.

But then both times I heard of my new siblings

They seemed similar and all,

But the differences were unexplainable

Only two years in between

Yet the happiness

So strong

The exciting mounting high.

These are all memories

Ones that each person has,

You cannot run away from them

So embrace them all.

My biggest collection of all memories,

Are the ones of me lying or sitting

Listening to music or nature

In bed or on the driveway

Looking at the closed side of my eyelids or the starry sky,

And thinking,remembering, yearning and grieving,

Even an occasional giggle isn't so rare

For that's just the way memories work

They trigger your heart and emotions

Hatred and love

Regretfulness and desire

All of which are caused by the past.

Great poem! I saw you mentioned this poem doesn't rhyme, but it doesn't need to! Some poems are better without rhymes, and this is a good example of a poem that doesn't need to.
