"A wise girl kisses, but doesn't love; listens, but doesn't believe; and leaves, before she is left"
~~ Marilyn Monroe

I'm fearful,
the past, present and future,
someday, all will be put to the test.
I'm regretful,
My past, cheerful and happy,
someday, may seem wasted to me.
I'm sinful,
My present, confusing and complicated,
someday, will begin the pavement to my future.
I'm hopeful,
My future, inviting and promising,
someday, will hold desires long kept from myself.
I'm fearful,
The future, past and present,
Everyday, are what shape me.

The author's comments:
This poem is very hidden in its' meanings. Basically, I am trying to say the past, present, and future are what shape who you are as a person, and sometimes, everything that has happened isn't good, so you worry what the future will bring. I was messing around with free-verse when I wrote this, and I'm rather proud of it actually.
