Change Poem

Living A Lie And Not Owning It

I have lived this life from childhood through to adolescent pretending to be something I'm not. It's time to change that situation and be open and truthful how my life was really.

In Denial

When am I going to accept
my imperfections?
war heroes lived with theirs,
bronzed and cemented were
accepted with memories adorned
why aren't mine?

I'm powerless, please change
my landscape, embalm my
space with kindness and
deflect from irrational
behaviour, addictions from
past to present, a life's confession.

Mine is a pattern of shifting role's
I'd pilot into solitary
wear like a loose blanket
a toolbox of past memories
consume me with a
sly ambiguous smile.
