I am not my past The litany of mistakes. A horror show of fakes, Too late on the brakes. But I am not my past. A houseful of lies, Paths trodden, unwise, Mistaken allies, But I am not my past Self-centred and vain, Judgemental, profane, A source of great pain, But I am not my past. Blind to your plight, Swift to incite But, now that I write, No, I am not my past.
