    I look back and
    I try and find the me
    I used to be. I look
    back and I try to hear
    the voice I used to have.
    I feel like I lost myself
    somehow in the everyday
    of life.
    I think I lost my voice somehow
    stifled by an unexplained occurrence
    I yearn to be the me that used to be
    I want to have the voice I used to have.
    And yet I know I cant.
    I've seen too much
    I've heard too much.
    SO now I can only be the me that is
    The me that I used to be but now
    more worn more mature.
    I can only use the voice I have now
    deeper fuller louder. So
    as I look back and reflect
    I mourn for the me that I have lost.
    But I love the me that I am now.
    I stand up stronger and more
    ready to handle the world
    more ready to speak my mind.
    Look out world . I make my return
    and there's nothing quiet about it.[/COLOR]

    Experiences can do that, make you feel like you have lost that part of you that is so special. Experiences can shape us, but not totally change who you are inside. I can relate to this piece, truly. Welcome back!

    That was a great poem. I can really undrestand what losing yourself is like and trying to love the person you have become but still mourning who you use to be. I enjoyed reading your poem.
