2 March 2022, After midnight

The past

Can’t change who you are.

They mock; they shout

They tell you that




Can’t change who you are.

Born with all those scars;

Born with all those marks


Yet you


Don’t listen.

Just quicken the pace

And drown out the craze


And you


Can change.

Just find your way

Get out of the maze.


Yet I


Still wonder

If I found my way through

After all these years


As I


Still feel

The past;

It lingers in my blood.





~ End? ~

    I can relate in a very heartful way. Remember, your past does not make you a bad person. I love the expression of feelings that you have used in your poem.

    Powerful piece. Congrats on the TS.

  • Whoaaa, this was so freaking powerful! I loved your poem!

  • Very well done and clever piece. Excellent work as always!

  • Marvelously introspective, rebellious & evocative. Your blending of "my", "your", & "our" is powerful.

    Very cleverly written and like the optimism of the first half and the contemplation of self and the past it leads into 🤍

    Writer's Notes: The "O" "U" and "R" are supposed to be lined up beneath "Y" in the original variation.
