"The Me of Today" by Gage Joseph


I may not be able to go back.

Not back to the past, at least.

I could return my old personality,

One that would never be pleased.

Even with the choice, I decide not.

Not because I hate him,

But because he’s served his time.

That life’s span would stay slim.

I can’t go into the future,

Yet I could start it now.

I don’t want to try, however.

A different future could be foul.

I don’t have all the answers,

“I won’t change” is what I say.

I’ll keep my life in writing,

So I don’t forget the me of today.

That’s when the fun starts. The sound of happy beings, The painting of dogs, The clap of a volleyball, And the swift sound of dancing water Seems to connect all From the seagulls fighting over fries T
