Which one is Me?

I look back in horror

to see

a girl who tried

to please others

-staring back

at me

 

zoned out

-a stranger to self

fumbling, floundering

to find elusive spaces

of honest expression

Could that ever be me?

 

failed attempts

unmet expectations

eliminated unwanted

crystallised the self

Yet, I wonder sometimes

Is this the real me?

 

Will I change with time?

get stuck in

sunk cost syndromes?

or flow like a river

submerging rocks

that dot the path?

but moving on…

moving on…
