Memory History - Poem by Rachel Branscombe

Memory is for life
The beads of time
Sewn across our hearts
With unbreakable string
Sometimes a bead falls off
An event is gone forever
Sometimes there are knots in the string
Where a bead cannot move
A memory unable to be forgotten

History is different
It changes with ebb and flow of time
When new facts and figures are founded
A river of events rushing
Approaching the waterfall of darkness
Only some float in water moving
Others lost for all time
When the water falls

Memory has many faults
Sometimes the string fades
Sometimes the bead cracks
Sometimes the fog of confusion takes over
History too has many faults
Important things can be completely missed
Together history and memory can do amazing
But apart they are two warriors
Fighting a never ending battle
