Does It Matter?

by HarryT

Memory diminishing like
Yellowing pages of a book
Being blown away

I have had a bit of challenge as of late with recollecting past events. In other words, recalling what I did as I was marching through time. A secondary problem has also surfaced that being one of instantaneous recall of words needed to finish a thought or explanation. I know what I wish to say, I know I know the answer, but the words will not come. My mind is a blank screen, my brain projector gone dead. My friend says it is because when we get older, we have accumulated so much information that sometimes it is difficult to find what we want to bring into use. Well not that I believe him but still I find it a pleasant excuse for my diminishing memory.

Does it matter though
If hour by hour, day by day
I'm becoming a better me
