Life's choices changes our lives.

I'm going through the same issues, but how did it go with yours? Did you mend your relationship with the ex, or did it get worse? Did he get vengeful with you?

Why did I decide to change the course of my life?
I was impatient and naive that I let people take advantage of me.
My life has turned up side down and now it is crashing down.
I thought I could find love and hold it, blindly I went for it.
And tried to hold on to someone I thought felt the same.
But only cause myself heartache and pain.

I gave all that I had my mind and body and soul.
For what, only to be told that I was not the one he wanted to hold.
That I was just someone he could control.
Said he was ashamed to be seen with me.
You don't know what that has done to me.
How stupid am I that I cry and cry.
Cry out why? Why?

Then I am reminded of the choices I had made.
Those choices have changed my life completely.
I have done this to myself.
No one is to blame.
I thought if I ignored the pain.
The pain would go away and things would change.

But I was wrong things have changed.
I do not feel the same.
For what was once love has turned to hate.
And now I must make my escape.

I had to choose between my ex boyfriend and someone knew. I chose the someone knew...finding out I was just a winning to him nothing more. I know my ex really loved me when he took me back after I was so horrible to him. I regret ever doubting the feelings I had for him.

My class thought that this poem was very nice and some of this happened to them in their life.
