Tricks memory plays

DSC05180Events that leave an indelible stain

On the temporal lobe of my brain

Over time they tend to morph

Pleasant memories seem to dwarf

Memories that are too painful to bear-

My memory bank is never fair

It indulges in this clever artifice

For joyous moments it displays avarice

The good it tends to magnify manifold

The bad it tucks away in remote folds

My deviant memory can thus ensure

That burdens of past I can endure

Focus on the present, for future hope.

Not dwell on past errors’ slippery slope
