THIS IS THE GIRL I WAS


This is the girl I was,

before life,

before things

happened

and tears tripped,

before hearts broke,

and days fell,

into the long drop

of time.


Before lines came

from stressed days,

and grey came

from nowhere,

and before the future,

that used to stretch

forever,

tick-tocked

into the past.


This is the girl I was,

once upon a time,

but the world

moved on

and I must too.

This, now,

is the girl I am,

who carries scars

and memories

like a packed case,

in a full room.


This is the girl I like,

I think,

who came through,

and moved on,

and held high

a tired head,

and smiled

with a full heart,

at all the days past,

and all the new dawns.
