I am not

February 18, 2017

Written By:

I am not the sum total of my mistakes,

 

A past ever so present and incomplete.

 

Believing that a true heart never breaks,

 

Was a crime not of passion but conceit.

 

It cost me the fragrance of my years,

 

The indomitable splendor of my youth.

 

But I am not the sum total of my fears,

 

Released as I have been by the truth.

 

When you told me the tale of another,

 

I replied you were free so to choose.

 

Knowing that the choice for the other,

 

Meant a life by my side you would lose.

 

The vanquished prostration of silence,

 

Was all you could see from your view.

 

But these are the words of defiance,

 

I am not the sum total of you.
