Unfinished and Finished

 

It was a time of great change

And things did change

Rapidly

Daily

Hourly

We were growing up

And we were trying to do it too fast

They were trying to discover who they were

Just like I was

They were looking in all the wrong places

Just like I was

They looked in places like

Sex

Drugs

Alcohol

Parties

New boyfriends every week

and Love

And they pretended they were satisfied

Pretended they were happy

I looked in places like

Depression

Self-Harm

Burning

Suicide

Mental Illness

Hatred

Rebellion

and Love

And I pretended I was okay

Pretended I wasn’t dying

 

They began to find more of themselves

As I began to lose the little part of myself I had
