It's about a person torn between memories and achievements.
"My Conflict" by dlw1925
Oh how my history chips away at my time.
Those reflections, just moments, add up in my mind.
I wonder of all that has been lost.
In terms of achievements what was the cost?
But what would I be without that which I've seen?
Who becomes the person when memories are lean?
A reflection that is me lives in my mind's mirror.
As it sometimes rises to the surface its influence grows nearer.
Can I now spare a moment to reflect on what made me me?
Should I spare the time and damn the achievements I see?
Would you still want the person who forgets about his past?
Without our memories could the mistake we forget be the one we made last?
Oh sweet reflection look how much time you cost me!
Come to me now.... No PLEASE leave me be!
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
