How we remember is so important.

The lies we feed ourselves daily,
On who we truly are.

The relationships we’ve had,
The difference between reminiscing and holding on.

The friends we’ve lost,
the people they were and the people they are.

How we remember is so important.

The battles we fought in history,
which side we chose.

The memories we have of the happenings,
the truth from the romanticised.

The scars that remain,
Turning survivor from victim.

How we remember is so important.
Maybe forgetting the details is better.
