As I sit back and ponder,
rereading poems I've written years before.
Thinking of the meanings and I began to wonder
are my poems just impish outbursts of a child,
Has my life not taken a step ahead,
Makes me think I've walked a few steps instead of a mile.
The same words just written differently,
Have I not changed, am I still who I was
My poems I thought they were my escape
From reality, I thought it was a door
that was going to let me run from my fate.
But as I sit here and think my eyes on the floor
I see a scene began to play, but only its a scene ...
Trying to live my life
Tired of all this strife
I've caused pain and tears
from hurt in the past years
My heart turned to ice
tired of your advice
Trying to tell me what to do
Trying to make me be you
My pain is as deep as the sea
