Tormented Past is a poem written by Yasmina McGlone and shared with The Ugly Writers under the theme Recovery for the month of March.
The face, is unfamiliar ,
My memories are blurred
But that overwhelming feeling of fear remains clear.
My past has been dark,
And now my future seems bright,
Though my present appears grey and uncertain.
You’re strong, resilient and bold
But sometimes I still feel I am broken.
I know, not forever I will feel this way,
It’s just for now it is how it must be.
Time to stir up the pot,
Bring the residue to the top
And then I will truly be free
