Evolution Of Me
Author: Poeticaleigh


Turn back in time and see smiles erased
The picture is painted black

Dreams of clean slates approached unanswered
What if I had closed my eyes tighter?

Would I have faced the experience?
And with that, can true happiness be obtained?

A moment of doubt for all dreams wished to be true
For all fairy tale endings

For all my prayers spoken silently
And for all the dandelions I plucked

Those fingers of luck flutter through the sky
Peering into my parallel reality

Peeking around an imaginary corner
Touching my unknown

Seeing my own blank canvas
Would I have faced the experience of me?

Would I, or could I have faced the music of my failures?
Would I, or could I have faced the symphony of my success?

My comfort aside, my security blanket forgotten
My forever brick wall is crumbled

Could I have ever found sanctuary in my nakedness?
Could I ever have faced the experience of me?

------- Author's Notes -------

This was the last poem I wrote - several years ago. I am hoping writer's block to be cured with some truthful critiquing.
