Left Myself Behind

Left Myself Behind

A Poem by Ed

poem about self denial


Apology on my face,

did I get the message

Let go to return it

apology is the message

the one in owe, a liar

because I don't get it the first time

and focus

like it was the horizon waiting for the day to come back.

Better play fair, aimlessly lose the false gesture of love.

Didn't know it.  Make the day great and theres no need to hope.

The appreciation of what was made, day wasted or accomplished.

Going back to having the same thoughts had ten years ago?

Is there reason to think I will have them in twenty?

Never saw what I'm good at, spending what is plenty.

In debt for being petty.

Lost sight of it

and lashed out.

Arrogance leaves its marks.

Could see why no one lets me.

Shouldn't say anything about what its worth.

Lost confidence in whats worth.

To realize a bundle of mistakes

hiding under

and though not that deep

and surface.

I'm free


I realize the neglect of my character

      end hidden bondage
