Living Through Painful Memories
by Phronesus Disegno
Age Group: Adult
A past experience of mine,
Of too many to count, of abuse --
It is over and long since gone,
And I wonder now, what is the use?
Now the memory -- it haunts my soul,
To re-live it, each day, once more --
And the trauma steals all of my life,
To be happy, a burdensome chore...
Which is worse, the experience itself?
Or the memory which causes strife?
One occurred without my choice,
But the other is a choice in my life --
I survived that part of my life,
And I learned something true to me --
If I lived through the experience,
I can live through the memory.
Author's Notes: If you lived through the experience, then most certainly, you can live through the memory of it.
