Memory is a fiction – v12

Our history, moments
events of our lives
anchored, preserved
as if written in time
yet memory is a fiction
a creation of the now

We recast our memories
our history to our purpose
only preserved in our minds
written on shifting sand
how we feel now, this moment
reshaping the fabric of our past

What we believe
not a lie, but a fiction
a creature of the now
our memory evolving
revised ever, changing
rewritten on sand
