I forget my password.
All my data, information, websites, life,
Why can't I remember it?
It is specific and unique to me,
I try all my usual passwords.
None of them work.
Letter and number combinations,
Old addresses and phone numbers,
Names of favorite fictional characters.
I recall that it was a meaningful word phrase,
The first letters of words in a long sentence
I would never forget.
Why can't I remember it?
Is it because nothing is meaningful to me?
That my life has been reduced to a sentence that isn't worth evocation?
Reduced to a feeble living existence that can
No longer be measured.
Not even a simple catch phrase or nursery rhyme.
Unable to define myself,
I panic and worry I'm not worthy and
May not exist.
