What happens to memories once forgotten?
Is there a chance
to bring them back to life?
Is there hope we just might –
go back to how we used to be?
Can we ever go back?
To smiling, laughing, and playing –
how we were all supposed to be?
Maybe we've just lost ourselves
within this mess of emotions

Or do we not look back at all?

The author's comments:
I wrote this at a difficult time in my life dealing with lost friendships, lost love, and the beginning of my realization that I'm about to start my final year of high school
