I Did

I did it, old you.

You were right, you know. You weren’t for me and you only brought me down.

I have so many things to say, old you.

But who you were changed, and I watched you drown.

You stayed behind, refused to grow, and now I can’t share with you all the joys, adventures, and knowledge bestowed.

I did it, old you—new you said I was stupid and naive—But I found my respite, and I rest in my reprieve.

I did it, old you.

I bounced along with no plan or course of action and was lost over and over again.

But I made it here through the weeds and through the sandy oblivion.

I did it, old you. I wish I could send you a postcard to the past. Goodbye, old you.

Sleep well, good friend. Perhaps when this life is over, your flame will fire again.
