And so we stand
facing each other
ghosts haunting our past
fear lingering
in the dark of ourselves.
Years have made us strong
we embrace it all-
the old we couldn’t let go of,
the new which
 fills us with hesitation.
We sift through all
 those days we
 breathed away,
scattering ourselves
to a merciless wind
who will transform us-
                                                                    in spite of ourselves.


  1. This is so spot-on. Your poetry continually speaks to me, I so connect with it. Deep, excellent write.

  2. Fantastic. Transformation is the journey "in spite of ourselves". I so resonate with this poem.

  3. Strong write here. Facing another person, despite the ghosts haunting the have captured the feeling / the experience well.

    Consider getting rid of that CAPTCHA thing. It doesn't make a blog very user friendly.

  4. I like how breathing links to wind at the end. Fantastic joining of ideas.

  5. Wow. Love this one. I can really relate and I LOVE the ending, so,so true that we have no say over the way we change and evolve. I think that is why transformation is so powerful and crucial. Magical piece.
