Recreating me

by Joy Sy

Left the world I've known so long
Cause I've never felt I truly belonged
A stranger amidst family

Reached for a dream
a chance to live the life
Live my well-worn fantasy

A mixed blessing
this untravelled road
I'm learning way too much about me

Lessons that reminds me
"You're not all that"
I guess Life, thus far, had been easy

On shifting sands of emotion
I struggle to resist the temptation
And go back to where I used to be

A good one. I really enjoyed it and it makes for great reading on New Year's Eve ;) You hit the nail right on the head there, I've been there myself and it is hard to change and you learn way too much about yourself. Good luck and a happy New Year.

you can never truly "go back to where you used to be"...even if you could, it would not be the same as you remember it. Best wishes for the re-creation of yourself - the year is new, the time is right.
