21

11 years ago

Walking downtown

Feeling ashamed

At the person I had become

Who would ever love me?

Who would even care if I died?

Haunting me night and day

Never close to my family

Friends drifting away

All alone with my books

All alone with my country

So rooted in my faith

This was the place I called home

So certain in my unworthiness

The reminder of my mistake

Lies on my body

Fading with lasers

Each pain episode

Brings me closer to erasing

The terrible thoughts I have lived with

The terrible thoughts also fading with time
