Today, I Remember

While everyone else spoke to themselves,

I wondered why I couldn’t talk to myself

About the things that I did more than a year ago.

Yesterday, I could only stare at the mirror for a moment.

I said “No,

I cannot do this anymore.

I think it’s time to get a haircut.”

But now, when I turn around,

I don’t want to do any of that.

“Well, I guess I’ll just get it coloured instead.

How about green? No.

I guess red is fine.

Maybe it’s too much.

Maybe dark brown will be okay.”

I turn around to look at myself

And say “Just look at what you have done

To yourself!” And smile.

My mind says

“It has been a year, hasn’t it?”

And I reply

“Actually, a little bit more than that.”

I just can’t help but remember the way

I lived one year ago and the way I am

Right now.

I don’t want to say that I was depressed.

I know that I was hurt.

I don’t want to lie about myself.

But at least, I’m happier now.
