old and new me meet for tea (7.27am)

old me and new me

meet for tea

to discuss violently

who gets to be.

—————————-

old me shouts pick me, pick me

she is the less effort to be.

but in truth i am shaken

by her false victories.

——————————–

old me and new me

meet for tea

to discuss violently

who gets to be.

————————-

new me admits

she is  harder to keep.

but always points me

towards being free.

——————————

old me and new me

meet for tea

to discuss violently

who gets to be.

———————————

new me says she wants to lead

but i can choose who to be.

suddenly old me turns to flee

the greatest price paid for me.

——————————–

old me and new me

meet for tea

to discuss violently

who gets to be.

  1. I can soooooo relate to this! I wonder why the ‘old me’ has to keep trying to come back? I guess it stays to remind us of how far we’ve come, but can be oh so tempting to slip back into some of the ‘old me’ habits when they seem easier even though I know they aren’t better.

thoughts, reactions or found a typo? i would love to know...
