Apart from blogging to raise awareness I am also an mc. I write and perform my own music so I thought I’d merge the two together to produce a short poem about my memoryloss 😊
I may be very forgetful and find it hard to manage,
There’s still no diagnosis so it’s clearly more than average.
Sometimes it tries to conquer me but i refuse to tap-out,
I am more than just my memory and these awful, random blackouts.
I try stand tall and hold my head high when in social situations,
But inside im sobbing, worrying so please have a little patience.
I may forget we were supposed to meet, but please do not dismiss me,
I’ve recently forgotten friends, I hope you can forgive me.
If you see me and I don’t acknowledge, please try not forget,
I simply don’t remember how it is we may have met.
I get wound up and come across moody, you’d understand if you really knew me,
I used to be more independent, so these changes really threw me.
I try to see the positives of negative times in life,
But sometimes it all becomes too much and I tend to cry at night.
I didn’t plan for it to be like this, I took my memory for granted,
But forgetfulness has become so natural, it’s almost like I planned it.
It’s made me appreciate so much more, like what I may have been put on his planet for,
To raise awareness for something that has no name, I’m blogging for help, forget the fame.
ForgetfulBlogger refuses to quit so I know one day, i’ll remember this.
