The Different Versions of Me

Image result for quotes about poetry

This is the first time in two years I’ve posted a creative writing piece, this one, in the form of a poem. A bit of context, when I came back from what is my ancestral home I had a mini breakdown where I started to question who I really was. After thinking I realised that I am a paradox, I cannot be defined, labelled or put into a box, I am capable of infinite things, of being infinite versions of myself, I can change, I can grow, I can become someone completely new.

The inspiration of this piece came from these thoughts, and so I decided to piece together a few different versions of myself, and see the words flow from my brain right down to my fingertips, here’s what came together…

its so fun to believe in parallel universes

to see yourself

as part of another

in one i’m a carefree soul

a wild spirit

yellow dresses with

blue skies

drunk on sunsets

and fireflies

in another i’m fierce

an attitude of sorts

leather jackets with

black concrete

drunk on smoke

and memories, bittersweet

in another im quiet & shy

a lover of books

cosy sweaters with

creamy coffee

drunk on lullabies

and a midnight sea

in another im cruel

sneaking glances

through tinted glasses

drunk on physical fights

and dim streetlights

its so fun to believe in parallel universes

to see my other selves

as part of me.
