Memories

By Paige Hughes, Class of 2014
 
Your mind can recreate your best memories 

It can also create the ones that you wished you could’ve erased like pencil on paper
Memories can last you a lifetime of happiness 
They can also turn out to be a living nightmare that you want to end 
The recreation can bring back the people you miss most when they’re gone
But then you’re left with just memories. Not being able to hug them again or hear them speak. 
The memories can bring you joy like when you were five and had the world wrapped around your fingertips 
But the memories can also bring you back disappointment of the “woulda coulda shoulda” stuff 
The memories in the mind are your own little world. 
The little world that you hope you can control when you can’t control the actual world
