THE FIRST TIME

If I could undo
The days,
When I was taught
The different ways
Of being in the limelight, a disguised shade
I would.

It was a race
And I had to constantly
Keep up with the pace.
Eye liner winged,
Best friends fixed,
A hurried love
Took away my soul’s dove.

It’s never too late, is it?
I found my way out
Of the light,
That ate me like a shark
Turned out,
I saw better
When it was completely dark.

My beliefs roared
And my light soul
Soared.
I left behind
The weights of the past
It was the first time
I fell in love with myself
And I knew no last.
