Who I used to be

I don't know where the time went.
Silly things got in the way.
 No one knew what was going on.
  I knew there was something wrong.
I didn't belong.
They would talk to me.
 They weren't kind.
 I started to plan.
 I would get there.
 Some day I would walk out of this cave.
 I left behind what was my world.
I won't go back.
 It calls me asking why I left.
 No one but me knows why.
 I think of those times.
 When I do, I keep walking
 like you do when you see a reflection.
Only what I see is in me.

Great Magpie for on the fly...bkm

There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all of the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for those who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.
