I am in isolation in my room.

Cold farewells and happy beginnings.

I am of spontaneous decisions,

Where my mind knows that they are wrong.

I am of lost dreams and endless dreams,

With a desire that never disappears.

I am of sadness and hate

Of pain and laughter

To fall apart and get up

I’m slow to trust but quick to forgive

I am of all my perfections and imperfections

    I love when you say, “To fall apart and get up” because that seems like an important lesson for anyone. It makes me think about how when I have hard times in my life, I try to get through them and keep going.

    What a beautiful and moving poem! I love the language you used to communicate your feelings.
