The past is at my door step, and I cannot help but want to dive into my old self... even though that's not who I am now

AROUND THE CORNER!

The barriar is awakening once more,

tidea of feelings are washing onto my skin

This old forgotten memory,

becomes my present day future

I had thoughts of being confident

not letting people at and arms distance

But when I felt it today and came to face my past

that I thought I concored

well... I was wrong

Not just wrong, but Humiliated

myself by thinking I was ready to face it.

NO!

It snuck up on me like a snake.

Without any warning it STRIKED me head on.

I felt the old habits come on

The sensation, the temptation,

to hide in my awkward shell

again.

But I worked so hard to shed that part of me off

.AND when I rose up against my fears

It was like sun finally came and swept the rainy clouds away.

Unfortunately, I feel the pull towards the other direction

I can not help but approach it.

This should not be happening!

I felt it big time,

the desire to have my old self for protection.

Instead I sat there.

But now
