Stop.
Remember this
When the world was easy
When you knew what to do
Remember the snow
Sparkling, luminescent, white
Remember the trees
Dark, burdened
Remember the sound
Muffled, peaceful
Remember now
If you don't, who will?
Remember yesterday?
When was yesterday?
I can't remember
Did it ever happen?
Did it ever matter?
Memory…
How arbitrary
Grasping onto one thought
Losing another
If no one remembers, how do you know it happened?
If no one remembers, did it happen?
If it didn't happen, does it matter?
Does it matter that I'm typing this?
I'll forget it, eventually
Does it matter that you're reading this?
You'll forget it too
Why bother?
Why bother to fight
To try to be first
They'll only forget after your first mistake
Someone died, yesterday
I forget how
I didn't know them
Ever
I don't remember
Their family remembers
So do their friends
Someone died, once
I never knew them
Their family remembered
But they're gone too
No one remembers now
If no one remembers, did they live?
If no one remembers, did their family live?
If no one remembers, does it matter?
Does it matter what they did?
Does it matter what they didn't do?
Does it matter what I do?
If no one remembers, did anyone live?
If no one will remember, does anyone live?
If no one lives, who will remember you?

Who will remember me?
