Lost Inside a Memory

 

LOST INSIDE A MEMORY

by Twinkle VanFleet

LOST INSIDE A MEMORY, WANDERING HELPLESSLY IN THE PAST-

INNOCENT AND CONFUSED, GROWING UP WAS MUCH TOO FAST.

LIFE WAS IN THE FAST LANE, PEOPLE FALLING DOWN-

INFLUENCE CONTROLLING LIVES, TEMPTATIONS LURKED AROUND.

UNSURE ABOUT TOMORROW, HOW COULD I HAVE KNOWN-

I WAS JUST A GIRL, BUT SOMEDAY I’D BE GROWN.

REALITY INCURRED MANY CHOICES, THOSE I WOULD SOMEDAY MAKE-

CONSEQUENCES WERE SURE TO FOLLOW, UP ROADS WHICH I MIGHT TAKE.

TRAPPED WITHIN THE MEMORY, I SEE A LITTLE GIRL I ONCE KNEW-

SAFE AND CONTENT FROM TOMORROW, OUR FUTURE HAD NO CLUE.

I MOVED ON WITH ALL STRUGGLES, SHE REMAINS PERFECT AND PURE-

I WOULD BECOME WHO I AM, TUCKING AWAY MEMORIES OF HER.

FINDING MYSELF BACK IN REALITY, WHO KNOWS WHERE IT MIGHT BE-

YESTERDAY, A SOUL DIVIDED IN TWO- ONLY THEN THEY BOTH WERE ME.
