Memories

They say that

when you experience

something traumatic

your mind can block it out

to protect you.

What if all of those

missing memories 

from my childhood, 

and teenage years,

and last week,

have all been blocked out?

What if I've experienced

terrible things

that I can't remember

and nobody tells me because

like my mind

they're trying to protect me

from the horrible truth?

Or maybe

my life is fine

and my childhood 

was really happy

and I just want to feel

like I have a reason

to be as depressed

as I am.
