Back To Square One

I’ve turned over a new leaf.
I’m taking the time
to get to know myself;
I’m doing something
I’ve never done before.

Even before I became of age,
I was too busy thinking
I always needed to have someone
to make me feel loved and appreciated.

But my fantasy and reality
were like night and day.
I ended up feeling more isolated
than when I was alone.

What I Regret

I regret not trying.
I regret giving up because of fear.
Even if my voice quivers,
I’m glad I tried
to get out of my comfort zone.
