Dear Former Me
I would just like to let you know that
you have eventually left
the abuser that nearly destroyed you.
For what it’s worth: you have regained
What you have lost: yourself
You’re still working on a few things, though,
but you’re getting there.
What you wanted most of all, to get a dog again
Has been accomplished.
And she’s the cutest little thing on four legs…
Guess what: your dream of being
a freelance writer is also being fulfilled.
Just a little more work,
And you will be where you’ve always wanted to be
Your son (my son) is married and has a daughter.
A few minor things can be improved in his life
But step by step, he’s getting there…
We’re not doing too bad, you and I
and right now you’re participating
in a Poetry Marathon…
Something your abuser said you couldn’t do…
Take care (I know you will)
From “The future you”
