this is the time they say

this is when you decide

this is when you change


if I’m doing all this deciding,

can’t i decide to stay the same?


must i choose my path

amidst all this chaos in my head?


today i am sure

tomorrow i doubt

the next day i am lost


who are all you who know yourselves

and could you possibly

introduce me

to me?

    I love this poem, Ashton. You really encapsulate the confusing nature of self doubt and life as a whole

    I enjoyed this poem its kind of like self reflection self identity type of stuff. Im always asking if I could introduce myself to my own self because I feel like there’d be more things to realize that way. Its a different perspective.
