Our past hurts are something we are always
trying to get away from,
Perhaps that’s why we keep amending
our memory of them,
In order to make it a little easier.
And maybe that’s why we make them a little
lighter than what they really are,
Then they won’t become so heavy
that we can no longer can carry them.
Whatever the case, we need to be ever mindful
that if we change our stories too much
The truth of them will fade into obscurity,
taking along with it their true meaning.
And our memory and its true mark will just become
One Big Lie.
