Memory Lane

Memory Lane prose poem

Photo by Derek Mindler

I remember the days past, the years past they all passed so fast as I take a walk on memory lane my mind remembers the rains, the pains and the gains and it places a strain on my brain because there’s a certain level I want to attain, when I was younger I had a perfect picture of the world, now am older, am not sure of this wrecked future, am not so certain and once again I fall into the same things, the bad things that taste so good, I promised and tried to abstain for good but I can’t help it, it sticks to me like a stain but who’s to blame for this Chain, it was passed from father to son like birdman and li’l Wayne but am still looking for change like the government but to say the truth the government is filled with bad men
Back in the days, they said I wouldn’t get far but now the melody is so clear makes me want to count my blessings, new day, new dressings, the harmony is so clear, there’s nothing left to do I have found my treasure in you, I have found my weakness in you, I hold onto the memories we made on memory lane, so dear to me it runs through my veins.

Memory Walk

Memory Walk short poem

Wanted to visit old lanes for a mocking bird. A luminous proxy wanted to play a game. Treachery flees from the trees and settles on the white wings of flying swans. No logarithm will stop to watch the invisible numbers
