Leave it to me

How should I know
I don’t

But I will find out
I will find out for the both of us
I will find out for the all of us

Until death do I part

I will seek
I will listen
I will meditate
I will know

And I will forget

I know
I will forget

Mostly I will forget
I mostly will forget
I will forget most

Like a tree I’ll drop knowledge
like a forsaken leaf

I will forget
I know

  1. I’m counting on Wordsworth – “Intimations of Immortality from Recollections of Early Childhood” – that I’ll remember something I forgot a long time ago.

    This probably has a more universal meaning but as someone suffering from estrogen deficiency I can totally identify with the “I know, I will forget.”

    I was lost, but happier, before I started to remember.

    The inner turnings of the mind…the memory…to forget to remember and remembering you’ll forget to remember (if that makes any sense?)

    Also…what I find interesting in your writing…there are no real definitives…nothing is for sure. ie ‘…it doesn’t matter’
