I remember the emotions of everything I was put through, the good and the bad
It is so much fun to remember family and how you came into this world
The joy of family coming together, their noses flaring when they smell the authentic food aunts and uncles create. The joy of seeing someone again after so long, the joy of being in love with each other so much that sometimes not seeing someone for a certain amount of time does not even matter in their eyes and soul.
My grandmothers and grandfathers eyes every time they greeted me, filled with so much love it was always a harder goodbye and an easy hello.
Cousins joking around and filling every room with personalities that are worth bragging about
Adolescents like me, speaking through the heart of passions they wish to fulfill in the future, in hopes of changing lives
Babies that make your heart melt
A friendly smile through anonymous strangers
A random compliment by someone who you admire
When you finally pass that test you have been studying weeks for, the feeling of a major accomplishment is always worth remembering
Don’t you wish it was possible to only remember the great parts? But if this was remembered we would forget about the things that really shaped us, the not so easy parts.
When my mind wanders I think of so many different things, things I cannot even mention.
The intensity of the cries of people I know and once knew
Their peach colored faces so burnt with exhaustion of sadness and heartbreak
The anger towards people who talked bad about me, how my mind felt so emotions, could have said so many hurtful things but my breath stayed silent
The nightmares that happen when my body is asleep but my mind is awake
The feelings of heartache after a fight with a loved one
The feeling of betrayal over someone you once trusted
The anxious feeling you get when you meet someone and talk to someone new
The loneliness you feel even when you are surrounded by people
The loneliness you feel even when you are alone
The relief of getting out of something you knew was bad for you
The times that are harder to remember are things we all try to suppress
Do not give in to negative peer pressure because you never know how it will change your life
When my mind waders, I feel alive
I feel alive because if nothing in my life ever happened if my mind constantly did not remind me of things I need to remember
I would just be surviving
