Notes

Memories
can often sink.
Anchor them down
with lasting ink.


If poems form,
recite out loud.
Closing both eyes,
notice a crowd.


Some will absorb
the lines you say,
then process them
in distinct ways.

Try to touch hearts
that can relate.
Spreading pure love
erases hate.

Allow the words
to paint feelings,
hope they provide
massive healings.

An unknown phrase
may release fears
Clear obstacles
and keep light near
.

– Grace Y. Estevez-Reddy

  1. I liked the opening words. Memories cqn often sink. This is true our memories can sink, and i think this is was created inside us by God for our sake, because the man sometimes needs to forget his memories and if those memories are not forgotten, our life might be hurt.

      1. Hope i succeeded in my point of view, and i would be more than happy if you re explain your point of view, because you are the author

      2. Your point of view is great , Mina. We all process things differently and that’s what makes us interesting, which I mention in the third stanza.
        In the first stanza, I’m referring to how many memories are kept in the subconscious but have a consistent presence that is easily accessible when needed.πŸ’•πŸ™πŸ’•
