Remember to forget

I'm doing poetry this month, in case you missed the first post.

Remember to forget,
The face that made life hell.
Reminisce about the good times instead,
Don't end up hiding in a shell.

Remember to forget,
The words that stung more than acid.
Relive the beautiful moments instead.
Don't let your heart turn rancid.

Remember to forget,
The deeds that shattered your trust.
Focus on the good ones instead,
Don't let your faith turn to dust.

Remember to forget,
The face, the words, the deeds.
So the one's worth remembering,
Aren't forgotten so easily...

This is the first poem I have ever 'edited'. Have a good day! :)


  1. Remember to forget the bad and remember the good; this is a beautiful poem, thank you! (:

  2. Mmm.. Good advice! Especially after the rough week. I've been working on forgetting someone. Slowly, but surely :)

  3. Beautiful poem with a wonderful message. I envy your talent with words in verse.

    Thank you for visiting my blog during the A to Z challenge.


    1. You're welcome MM. I have to say, I enjoyed reading your blog. :)

  4. Good lessons to keep in mind. It's so easy for people to focus on the negative, that they don't realize how much the good outweighs the bad things that happen. Something that needs repeating in many different ways. Writer’s Mark

    1. Well sometimes the bad does outweigh the good but as the saying goes, the night is darkest before dawn!

      Thanks for visiting! :)

  5. This poem is sad, yet optimistic. It's true that bad experiences can sometimes take over people's minds so that they forget to remember the good instead. Yay for positive thinking.

  6. I love how you opened each stanza with the same line- it gave it a touch of circling back.

  7. ... So the ones worth remembering/Aren't forgotten so easily.

    Perfect ending! :) I love the message that you give through this: we must never lose sight of our positives when negativity surrounds us.

  8. This is beautiful, and a great lesson. Although I do think it's important to remember who burned you in the past, so you never have to go through it again, at least not from the same person! :)
