Why Do We Keep

What reason do we have to collect
Do we keep things that we don’t need
Are we brought to this by some hidden urge
Or is there some unwritten code we heed.

Like when we care for someone who we email
Do we trash them or put each in a folder instead
What make us keep each of the letters written
To go back and read all the words that were said.

What makes us look at the places we shared
Those sites or the places that were used to chat
When we try to move on and stop feeling the pain
Why do we keep looking? What is up with that?

Are we simply creatures of habit without control
Why must we put our self in a position to repeat
When you know that someone can’t change who they are
Why do you think that you walk a different street.

    I find myself keeping keepsakes and wonder from time to time why??? Creatures of habit we are and sometimes we just don’t want to admit that it’s over, gone, to give up and move on. As we get older the change is harder to accept I think so we remain in the past because it is a comfort zone even if it brings us heartache.
