Two Shadows… #Poetry

I am twice-born, yet I remember

 all my other yesterdays

Dark times, too many mistakes

the pain I left along the way

I cannot go back or forget.

How can I live this life with so

many memories from another life?

I touch the darkness that lives inside

it pushes back,

I dance with the ghost of myself.

If I cannot rid myself of these old memories

old ghosts, there will be no new life.

Living with two shadows

the days are overcast, brooding

 Heavy, like a storm waiting to break.

I cannot walk through the same footsteps again

I must find a new path, make myself worthy of this life

in order to be rid of the old…
