Memory Serves - Poem by Rowan Welch

Names are not faces,
Regardless of what memory serves.
If so, my face is split,
And personality proven nonexistent.

I am not healed yet;
My soul proves quite resistant.
The past-offering futures;
The present-dictated by history.

Forget not, however,
That the present has power over past.
For what’s past has not passed,
And is therefore not past.

What remains is your choices;
They govern many things.
Will is very important-
If you are to be anything.

So remember this truly,
forgotten things bear mystery.
But what’s evident is you,
And your control over history.
