“Glimpes of a life well lived”

What did I do all those years ago?

Who did I talk to?

Who did I love?

I can remember glimpses of a life that doesn’t feel like it was mine yet I know it was.

But it’s not enough to remember glimpses.

I want to remember what I did.

But my memories are gone and they are not coming back.

I don’t know if I can forgive myself for letter me forget,

For mistreating my body and my mind to the point I can’t ever remember who I once was.

I wish I could go back to when it all started, to when I was still young and innocent.

I would do everything differently.

The truth is that I regret my life know but given the chance to go back in time I wouldn’t live it any other way.

Even though I’m sitting here, many years later, wishing I could remember what I did.

Who I was.

I wouldn’t have lived any other way.

I may regret my life.

But I wouldn’t have wanted to live it any other way.
