Everyone Comes from Somewhere

Everyone comes from somewhere, but sometimes we forget.
We forget about the one that brought us into the world.
We forget about the first friend we ever made.
We forget about the first time our heart was broken.
We forget about the words of wisdom our father spoke.
We forget about the promises we made to our lovers.
We forget about the pain we felt that once made us cry.
We forget to do the things that are good for us,
                                                 because bad feels so good.
We forget that sometimes it is better to just slow down.
We forget that our actions may affect the lives of others.
But most importantly
We seem to forget that life here is temporary,
                        and the things we remember
                                       are the things memories are made from.
