Poem: The Unpeeling

As I reflected on my life,

I found myself

reviewing past events.

I made decisions

that I regret.

However, my decisions

brought me

to the present.

The present

is filled

with unhappiness

and despair.

I look in the mirror

and stare.

Where did the time go?

Why am I still standing?

What must I do

to change my circumstances?

Is the life I want

within my reach?

Maybe or

maybe not.

Should I try to change?


Will it matter?


How do I start?

I must activate

the process

by seeing things

as they are

and not

as I want them to be.

Once I remove

the layers of the past

and embrace the truth

of the present,

the unpeeling begins

and provides

the framework

for the future.
