Sonnet – Ode to A Forgotten Self
You there, yes you, did you think I forgot
You are far more special to me than that
I have tried to stop you from falling flat
but in concern I found I over-shot.
Pulling you back too fast when you felt hot
I realise now, I only ever held you back
Ready to fall at the smallest attack
I thought I was helping, but I was not.
You had to learn to find the strength within,
you who have learned beyond me are stronger.
And I am just glad that we share our skin
Now that you don’t need me any longer.
The warring selves are now back together
Now seize the day in any weather.
