Remember to Forget

If you could do something
of self-love
Remember to forget

Take the hundred steps it takes
Beyond the 21-day habit

Remember to forget
For as long as you can remember

Memories serve us well
It is suffering that doesn’t

Remember to forget that it hurts
To forget how it does

Remember to forget who forgets you
To forget what you forgive

The road may surprise you
Suffering may not recognize you
‐ It is better that way.

Esmeralda Balita is a living paradox.
