Was I Wrong

A Poem by Evelynn

Walking slowly down the street

Now I’m back on my own feet

Thinking back to my old life

Was I wrong to leave it all behind

Should I have stayed and made them proud

Was I wrong to scream and shout

Did I make a big mistake

By leaving that world, did I cause it to break

Was I wrong to want to leave that life 

Was I wrong to want a life all mine

Should I be sorry for living my dream

Do you want me to apologize for finally being me

The past isn't meant to be forgotten, rather, forgiven. I look at my past often because sometimes I can find that the past's meanings evolve through my different present troubles. And so in my past I find a pattern to apply to a future problem. Don't forget the past, use it properly and apply it. First, of course, you must forgive it. Just a bit of advice.

To the poem, short and sweet. I liked it.

I really enjoyed this poem. I think everyone goes through something like this at one point in their life.

You were right to leave.
"Should I be sorry for living my dream
Do you want me to apologize for finally being me"
I understand the above lines. All of us must seek our place and seek our dreams. Sometime we walk away and sometimes we must run away. I enjoyed this poem. Made the reader think. Thank you Evelynn for sharing the excellent poetry.

well penned Evelynn, enough to express that feeling. There were things we really regret that we did but never regret the things that made you happy.

Thank you so much
Nicely and thoughtfully described. If you can't be yourself and be true to yourself, then things will never work properly with other people.

So much truth is in this piece, and beauty as well! Loved it, no you were not wrong....☺

A nice piece. Short but emotional. The conflict between what we think is wrong and what we want.
