 Harry Sweeden. My life in verse.

An after thought?
Rebuilding my mind, thought after thought
Trying to decide on what thoughts to discard
So many are intertwined with everything that I am
So many make the simple things too hard.
All I believed that I had become…?
Now the foundations of that life destroyed
Hope and betrayal is all I am now left with
Needing new thoughts to fill that huge void.
But what do I do with the memories I have?
Some so beautiful they now burden my heart
How do I vanquish a thought burned so very deep…
Even though it’s ripping my mind apart?
