Born Again

I am the child of change, adopted by many.
From the intense fusion of hope and desire, I was born.

The many who fostered me, became me
Moulded by the hands of happiness and memories in the sun,
Shaped by the sharp blades of misery,
This is what I have become.

Yet, I say to you, I am missing a limb
With every passing moment in time, I am born anew.
With something missing, agreed
But not without a memory in the vault of thought.

The mother of change has brought unto me
A sense of reality, almost extinct in this make-shift world,
Where no one lasts, except my mother.

You know, actually... I think they DO have some clue of what they're doing to us, but they continue to do it.

Some do it knowingly, some sub-conciously :/

And thank you ( :

You have so much talent. I can feel the pain that you've gone through 'cos I've been with you every step of the road. Keep expressing (  :

Ths poem is so beautiful and strong. I love the graceful honesty that you put into each line. A few of my favorites: "But not without a memory in the vault of thought" and the first two "I am the child of change, adopted by many/ From the intense fusion of hope and desire, I was born" - those just paint a picture in my mind :) Loved it. Keep writing!
