I made a wish
To change my life
To take who I am
And make a new me
The list of changes
Was a long one
From being fat
To being thin
From being shy
To being assertive
From being anxious
To being calm
From being depressed
To being happy
And on and on
But I realized too late
With all those changes
I lost my true self
Instead of embracing me
I chose a stranger

  1. i am wiser now thanks to those dumb decisions/indecisions. But I am still the same person, flawed, over-sensitive and prone to anger or talking too much. When I was visiting Ed while he was dying of cancer we agreed all the dumb things we’ve done don’t matter in the end. enjoy the gifted poet you are, the woman who uses verse to dig deep.
