I didn't mean to do it
But I did
But it wasn't me
Not really
Because it wasn't the me I want to be

It wasn't you?
That's your excuse?
Don't twist the truth 
It was you doing what you do
You'll never be who you want to be

I'm trying hard to change from me
I hate myself
Hate what I see
In the mirror, the man
He needs to die for a clean slate

Change is hard
Won't come easy 
Look at yourself more positively
There's no such thing as full rebirth
Take what you have reshape and mould

Reality is the key
Don't hate yourself destructively
We all have qualities good and bad
Nobody is perfect
No need to feel sad

Keep the love you have
The things that bring joy to your day
Break off what is bad
Let it rot and decay

No amount of money
Will change you forever

You are who you are
Accept it
Its fact
Take the good with the bad


  1. Wow, Andy, this is amazing! You hit at the core of so much. Everything you write is beautiful, but I'm especially fond of this poem. And I think I'm back into the routine after the A-Z Challenge and just about completing my second book. Oh, but the time flew!

  2. Good luck, Andy. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. The country's coming out of a tough period little people like us didn't create. It's' not easy, hanging on. I can tell you've got a brave heart that keeps hope alive. When we drove through PA, to Vermont, I saw a big change from last year. Few foreclosures, lots of construction, lots of trucks on the road, and Now Hiring signs. I really, really hope your opportunity is within this rebirth. Hugs!

  3. Hey, how'd the job situation work out? Here's hoping you've got good news.
