Old Memories

Fun/Free time

         I was walking down by the pond that was behind my house. As I was walking something caught my eye. It was a metal box, full of something liquid like. It looked like oil but was more like water. As i looked into it i could see something forming in it. It started showing my memories as a kid. First when i was born, then it was when my mother died. It kept showing me bad memories of my past. I kept the box closed as i walked by a barn also by the pond.


        I buried it by the back door so I could remember where it was. As I ran back to my house all I could think about was the box and what it showed. I thought why did it have that stuff in it and where did  it come from. All I could do was sleep on it.


       I awoke to the sound of my dogs barking like crazy. I got ready and ate a apple while I went back to the barn where i buried the box. The box was still where it was. I opened it again but there was nothing in it anymore. I jsut stared at it for a minute to see that there where letters inscribed on the bottom of the lid. It said "live life to the fullest, don't let old memories hold you down."

Bad memories

Yes, you are right but what about the bad memories most times we don't wnna keep them. Atleast not the ones that hurt. But I do see where you come from good memories everyone loves to cherish forever.


Life is one hard thing to get...
