Re-Posting – A Handful Of Joys

What if I gaze upon

Something beautiful

For long enough

To wipe out all

That I really don’t

Want to reside

In my mind

I can look upon such beauty

For as long as I want to

But what I went through

In days which are past now

Will stay with me forever

As memories of pain

Are inked more deeply

Than handful of joys

    Age, I have found, brings perspective, or perhaps selective memory that latches onto the positives more than the pain.

      Indeed but for some, certain negative aspects from the past also drags along, whether they like it or not.

    I think that joy and good memories can cause pain to lose its sharpness and fade away, leaving only a little scar.

      Yes, you are right. Every now and then, I do recall about the old days, while spending my today.
