this is a wonderful read,
stylistically, somewhat reminiscent of Emily Dickinson,
without the rhyming..
thanks for sharing

Present Perspective
L. B. Mek said:

its rare to read such raw feeling\'s being expressed, with such poetic eloquence..
keep sharing, expressing: striving...
\'More power to you!\'

L. B. Mek said:

as is true for most of us
the only guaranteed certainty in existence, is change
and that usually means
\'gone with what we\'ve chosen to shed\'
and being accepting of the new evolved, you..
thanks for sharing

We all change over a period of years. As for not liking who we were: I think some aspect of that can be found in all of us too. As long as we can see ourselves changing for the better, we can consider ourselves to be on the right track.

So much more L. Thousands upon thousands of things, big and small, go into making us who we are and those things are constantly changing. You\'re important and you matter. Hang in there and please keep writing. You\'re so very talented🙂

Defeat.No,... there is triumph in your words and the more you write then the more triumphant you shall be.

The catharsis of poetry fills this site.

Parting Ways
L. B. Mek said:

this: is awesome...!
surreal, in its distilled simplicity
and yet
majestically profound
in its ability to word, succinctly
that lurking, formless shadowy thought
we dare not attempt: to comprehend..
thanks for sharing, dear poet

Wow! Just seeing this now. Incredibly deep, vulnerable...I totally could relate with this. Thank you for sharing!

I\'d vote for nothing at all (ever since age approx 14).You can believe - yes (as you can believe in Santa or the tooth fairy) but you cannot know. For those who must believe, let them if it gives them a happy life.
Keep enquiring - think infinite time, infinite space; do not become lost (can be a dangerous trip if you stay there too long).
Good rational progression from you wrapped in fine poetic form.
Take care of yourself.

I see it as be-living. I\'ve spelt \'believing\' wrong here, I know.
I feel we need to believe in something, someone even - a God.
I don\'t believe in reincarnation, or spooky stuff like that though.

Just For You
Clara said:

A poem about love is nothing new... But what you\'ve done here, a poem about self love, now that\'s refreshing! I like it! Great work!

Until I did
dusk arising said:

This is an excellent piece of poetry. It displays what I have taken to heart, that poetry it\'s self is like a therapy. You can write yourself out of a bad place and it looks like you\'ve done just that and in this piece you briefly look back along your path.
I\'m an old man now and have seen a lot of changes, coincidentally today I post something i wrote about a low period in my early life.

What doesn\'t kill you, makes you stronger.

Until I did
Goldfinch60 said:

We should always look ahead in our lives, the passed has given us the experience to be where we are today.

Sterilite Tubs and Reflections
dusk arising said:

I disagree with your final line. You\'ve got a life, and a good head. You\'re working your way through lifes hurdles at a young age.... formative years...... you will eventually become self aware and able to love that which you are.

Think butterflys. They dont start out beautiful... and you are on your way.

The way you write has you on the right path without a doubt.... more please.

Thank you lonelyraccon for “using your words” to write such a beautiful and moving piece. I am privileged to come across the rare piece where one writes from the lovely interior most place of their heart. What can one do with such pain? The deep stabbing pain of depression? Rejection? Isolation? I know of only one remedy: Write and share. Your pain is my pain and trust me, I wont let it go to waste. Solidarity dear one with the One whom suffered like no other.

\"Did I Get Too Old For You?\"
dusk arising said:

Hope you feel better after that. I see you have only read 4 other peoples poems on here and never commented on any (info on your profile page). You will attract more comment/interest from other poets if you read and comment on others work. That\'s how this site works best.

Hungry for Answers
Poetic Dan said:

Wow this was breathtaking. I ran away from my dysfunctional family at 14, I remember this unanswerable feeling and I soon got lost in hip hop and disappeared for a few years.
It\'s not easy to stay level headed but I promise everything will work out in the end. Even smoother with a pen and words expressed like this, never forget you\'re wonderful gift.

We are all poets
Waiting to know it
Much peace and respect

Fay Slimm. said:

Questions we all ask at one time or another and put into poetic lines such as this after a health scare would make time more vital - -- writing it out will help and hoping soon the obsession will lessen - a moving read.

What’s Reality?
Nicholas Browning said:

Well, in personal experience I\'ve been knocked out at school, and arrested at school. When I was in the 1st or 2nd grade, a tall guy who was a couple years older than me jumped off a playground tower and landed on my head. He didn\'t see me, so it wasn\'t his fault. It just happened. When I woke up, the whole school was there. Just staring at me. The ambulance was there, and so were my parents. They put me in a stretcher and sent me away. I don\'t really remember it as a bad memory though. It\'s just something that happened.
Another thing, when I was in highschool I was arrested for assault and battery. I slapped, and pushed, a guy who was bullying someone that I thought was my friend. That \"friend\" of mine didn\'t back up my story. So, I got arrested for being the bully. Walked out in front of the whole school in handcuffs. That was a tad bit embarrassing. I laughed it off though. Didn\'t get into any trouble really.
So, I guess the only advice to give you is to laugh it off. Screw what other people say. Can\'t let a million voices get you down when there\'s only one that matters.
Best regards.

Lesson Unlearned
Nicholas Browning said:

Sight deceives us more than anything. Our eyes lie to us all the time, unbeknownst to us all the while.
A nice message to accompany your words.
Best regards.
