Patti Morelli

Author        Poet

I  stand here looking out to sea

Can't help asking

What happened to me

A young girl so full life

Ready take on any fight

Where did I go

Just living doing what was right

I abandoned my dreams

So long ago

I stop living for me

I lost myself

I will fix this broken me

I will mend the pieces

Some pieces that are lost

Never to be found

At this time in my life

I will not be held down

I will stand by ground

It will be different now

I will live only for me

For it is the only way it can be
