Memory(past never ends)

A simply sweet memory will never be as amazing when put beside a bittersweet memory. Everything good in the world has to have pain behind it, otherwise it isn't truly wonderful. Then again nothing is ever going to be the way it seems. So take a close look at your simple and sweet memory, analyze it in a way you haven't done before. Do you still only see pure happiness? If that was a yes, then you are living in ignorance. As some may have tried telling you before, ignorance is not bliss. If that was a no, then you are on the same page as myself. Can you see the pain embedded in your memory? Look through all of it again, did the pain turn the memory into a terrible one or an amazing one? Let's hope you chose an amazing one. As some girls will tell you, beauty is pain, and they are most certainly half right on that one.
