Burying my past

My twenties were a nightmare

So I’m burying my past

Never dwelling too long

On the sea of regrets

Or the choices I made

The things I could have done

Differently or not at all

Lately I say to myself

I’m ruthless

Fearless

Ambitious

And ready for anything

I’m tweaking my style

Modifying my behavior

Where I think I need work

And attempting to craft myself

Into the man I’d like to be

I’m burying my past

All the pain and love lost

The harm to my spirit and soul

I’ll leave it all behind

As I carve my niche

In the city of my birth
