Just About A Year Ago

I thought I knew who I was just about a year ago 

Looking back now, I see how foolish that was to think

I allowed a boy to have sovereignty over me 

How I thought I was in love and finally complete 

But in reality, I lost myself unintentionally 

I thought I knew who I was just about a year ago 

For three months, my life dragged on

With dark clouds hovering above me 

I was stuck with no escape in sight 

Until one day, I looked in the mirror and knew changes had to be made 

A year has passed, I know who I am 

That naive girl isn't here anymore

She has been replaced with a strong, independant woman 

The time for self-loathing is over 

Dark clouds no longer loom over head 

A year has passed, I know who I am 

 

This poem is about: 
Me
