Me and Myself
Somewhere in the mountain of my long-ago dreams,
A child so dearly loved lived.
I can never forget his chocolate smeared cheeks and his runny nose;
Something that I always remember wherever I go.
He was a kid of many friends,
And his days were filled with adventures;
From spicy cheese curls and vanilla popsicles
To sticker tattoos and alphabet blocks,
His life was a life many children dream.
He was a kid of undying questions,
A young soul who lived in fantasies,
A new life filled with excitements,
And a child of endless dreams.
I so wonder what happened to this kid.
I wonder why he didn’t grow up the same way consistently.
I wonder what killed him,
Because whenever I look at the mirror I can still see him staring at me,
But I’m afraid
He’s gone through a lot of pain that all I can see in his eyes are dead fires
And an imprisoned soul.
