Inspired by the poem “Forgetfulness” by Billy Collins, Allicea crafted this acrostic poem focusing on family.

Family is where all the memories begin to form,
Our friends start to come around and cherish these moments with us.
Right where we stand on memory lane,
Giving love and happiness to those around us.
Everything around you is perfect,
Till you grow older and start losing memories from the past. 
Forgotten days of joy, locked away forever.
Until found again, who will know?
Leaning against the wall, trying to remember, they
Never seem to ring a bell.
Erasing the past one by one,
"Shall we move forward and make new ones?" says she; 
Slowly she will find them again.
