Hindsight vs. Recollection (#505)

Hindsight is 20/20 but why not recollection?
Memories aren’t quite as clear as reflection,
They are shadows, echoes, snapshots of the past,
The emotional weight of them continue to last,
Yet hindsight is more logical and pristine,
It allows you to see what before wasn’t seen,
Over time, our precious memories tend to fade,
Hindsight shows the choices made and unmade,
One is like a powerful microscope of truth,
The other is more like an amateur sleuth,
Amazing is the clarity of introspection,
Hindsight is 20/20 but why not recollection?
