I Say Goodbye To My Bad Self Poem by Obed dela Cruz

I Say Goodbye To My Bad Self

Rating: 4.6


Now, it has been a long time
Since we’re together in a rhyme
Thinking of how we will use this lime
Because together, we are one mime.

We lived, acted, and have done wrong doings together,
And I thought we could be happy with this forever
But these wrong things we’ve done, I want not to remember,
Because you’ve made me a cheater and not a good sir.

I’m sick of being a bad actor trying to be good
And now, I have finally decided to change my mood
I want to say goodbye to you because that is a should
I will leave and forsake you because I know I could.

Bad self, fleshly deeds, bad works, and negative side of me,
Goodbye to you because I need to be what I should be
And what I “should be” is being truthful, just, and free.
That’s why I’ve decided to be a “respectful he”

For sure, when I disregard and overcome you, I’m more than a peaceful sea,
Because in my observation, when we’re together, we are bad poetry.
I am not blind because I live in the truth and God gave me eyes that can see.
I am designed to be a human being and a human being I need to be.

I am a man who loves God and loved by God,
And not just a creature that was made from mud.
I’ll leave you because I’m not just a lad
But a dear man that doesn’t like to be bad.

I choose to walk on the straight roads of truth,
So that I won’t destroy my youth
And I wish not to be uncouth
For I know that I’m more than a sleuth.

After all of these things I wrote, my message is just that I say goodbye to my bad self.
For I have decided to be the best and not just an old book inside that old shelf.

I desire to excel and help others to be the best
Because my allegiance belongs to the Supreme One.
