Remembering

Remember when life didnít feel like a †  
task †
When it didnít feel like a never ending †  
chore †  
When the days were enjoyed and not †
dreaded †  
When no worries crept in your soul †  
†  
Do you remember your childhood home and playing in the yard †  
Do you remember staying out exploring until the peak of dusk  
Illuminating our fort with the fireflies that we
caught
climbing high light of heavy fear †
†  
Maybe it is I †
Or maybe itís my age †  
Or maybe this strange society †  
Has crumbled and decayed †  
†  
Maybe itís the shallow †  
Or the lack of depth †  
The fragile more expensive things †
That create in us compliancy †  
†  
Remembering seems far away †  
Perhaps from my aphantasia †  
I found my love †  
And with him came new †  
daydreams of our future †  
Yet still I remember enough †  
To now know that itís harder to have them †
