Poem - Life Released

The poem “Life Released” is specifically about the blocking of memories due to traumatic situations.


Life Released

To forget becomes the balm
decades gone from recall
some would see this with alarm
while the fortunate find their calm

the established cast aside
when tortured thoughts cruelly lie
that safety has been divorced
from the nature of life’s course

memory left far behind
from the majority of the mind
until only small pools remain
hinting at a lack of rain

this denies a life once lived
now disregarded to persevere
the cure becomes a disease
to forget is life released.
