Looking Back

Written by Tara Clark

Looking back into the past,

Wondering how it went so fast.

Thinking on all the tears that fell,

Realizing I have lived through hell.

Marveling at how I’ve survived,

Thankful that I’m revived.

Knowing it all changed in an instant,

Wishing that it was somehow different.

The person I had become,

Made me walk to a different drum.

Some may say that I am broken,

But I see a different token.

I am happy to say I have escaped,

The terrible life that once was shaped.

And all of this was ok, you see,

For that was what created me.
