"There are two great days in a person's life, the day we are born and the day we discover why."

The days go by slow.
The weeks go by fast.
It's almost impossible to run away from my past.
To get a fresh start,
where no one knows my name.
Nothing will ever be the same.
Starting with a clean slate
is easier said than done.
Something is always there to ruin the fun.
A flashback or a memory,
to make my smile fall.
Then reality makes its eversounding call.
What I have done follows me
everywhere I go.
If nobody else, I will always know.
Happiness is out of my reach.
The existence of love remains to be seen,
though my eyes have always been so very keen.
I can never be free
because the knowledge of my deed
is forever inside of me.
Seered onto my brain,
engraved on my heart.
I am my own prisoner,
tearing myself apart.
