Diminishing

I used to be afraid
Of waking up at forty
And wondering where
My life had gone.

I never expected to
Wake up at twenty-one
And wonder where
I had gone.

**********


I am two different people:
Before and After
Life and Death.

They fight within me
One struggling to hold on
One desperate to let go.

**********


People look back on these years
And wish they could return.

I pray that these will not turn out to be
The best years of my life.

**********


I wonder who I am
I wonder who I will become.
