    Memories infest our souls,
    they change the way we are.

    I was running towards my goal,
    it was completely in sight.
    The thorns & bushes tried to restrain me,
    but i was in the mood to fight.

    I scrambled my way through the thorns
    & dodged the eroding winds.
    I could feel the trophy in my hands
    & the strength in my limbs.

    But suddenly, the time stopped
    & the moment froze.
    The rest of the world came to a stand still,
    albeit my mind was working alright.

    My mind re visited the dark times,
    it reminded me of my falls.
    There was darkness all around,
    'loser' written all over the walls.

    Suddenly the moment refreshed
    & i was back in the present.
    My legs felt a bit shaky,
    the confidence seemed forgotten.

    I no longer had that spark,
    the harsh world noticed this.
    The thorns cut me & winds blew me away,
    I was lying on the ground, all opportunities missed.

    The trophy was gone
    & the body was battered.
    Hence, again, my memories let me down,
    destroyed my confidence & shouted 'loser' aloud.

    To add to my collection,
    this was another bad memory,
    another source of crushing my confidence,
    another way to doubt my skills.

    It looks like i will never come out of it,
    unless the god rains mercy,
    gives me something boosting,
    a successful & winning memory.

    Or else the saga would continue.........

    Good memories are fast and fleeting and are often a matter of perspective.  It is a nice thought though.

    Nice poem.

    I remember that Leibniz, a famous philosopher from modernity claimed that people's personality was guarranteed by a continuity of memory. In that sense memories really are what make us who we are as people.

      Yes.  They can also be said to confine us, imprison us, making us who we are whether or not it's who we want to be.  Holding on to memories is a two edged sword in that it's difficult to let go of the bad ones and keep the good ones.  Leibriz''s continuity of memory theory  is another way of saying we perpetuate a theme in our lives, whether destructive or edifying, by holding on to impressions of the past, much of which is delusion.  The mind does not distinguish between something that actually occured, something we remember, or something we imagined.  By 'inventing' new ways to 'be', by intentionally behaving in new ways, by visualizing what we desire to be, we can indeed change our personality and our lives.
