Random Poem:


I look back on my recent past
A past that I don't recognize
Just in the span of one year
I did enough harm to last
the rest of my life.
Everyone who used to look up to me
Now has lost all respect
I've broken hearts
And shrugged it off
I had lost all intellect
I slept around, lied to men
Said I liked him
To get his best friend
I was on fire,
sizzling hot
Too impetuous
to let just anyone
get a passing shot
I drifted around
From group to group
Stayed only long enough
For them to tear me down.
When they realized
who I was
Nothing outweighed
All of my flaws.
Now I am ashamed
Of my embarrassing past
I knew in my heart
I needed to change, fast.
I know I can't go back
to fix all the damage I've caused
I just want you to know
that I've changed
I'm not the same person that I was.
And I'm proud of that.
