Random Poem:

Regrets
unknown

I look back on my recent past
 1
A past that I don't recognize
 2
Just in the span of one year
 3
I did enough harm to last
 4
the rest of my life.
 5
Everyone who used to look up to me
 6
Now has lost all respect
 7
I've broken hearts
 8
And shrugged it off
 9
I had lost all intellect
 10
I slept around, lied to men
 11
Said I liked him
 12
To get his best friend
 13
I was on fire,
 14
sizzling hot
 15
Too impetuous
 16
to let just anyone
 17
get a passing shot
 18
I drifted around
 19
From group to group
 20
Stayed only long enough
 21
For them to tear me down.
 22
When they realized
 23
who I was
 24
Nothing outweighed
 25
All of my flaws.
 26
Now I am ashamed
 27
Of my embarrassing past
 28
I knew in my heart
 29
I needed to change, fast.
 30
I know I can't go back
 31
to fix all the damage I've caused
 32
I just want you to know
 33
that I've changed
 34
I'm not the same person that I was.
 35
And I'm proud of that.
 36
