I'll also probably forget to respond to comments- it's not cause I don't appreciate them ( I do- a lot), I'm just really absentminded.

In Awe of Past Me

November 19, 2020


I have no idea how I did it- how did I do it? 
Those hours upon hours studying for tests
and then still having the energy to hang out and relax,
going to bed eager for what was to come.

How did I do it?
Function the way I did, running off little energy,
hardly any food,
and yet feeling so alive?

How was I able to do the fall play,
and still have time to do homework,
when I'm not doing anything now
and I can barely stay awake in class?

What did I have then that I don't have now?
I have more friends now
and stronger relationships
I eat better now- shouldn't my mind be clearer?

How did I write every morning,
go to school,
play the violin,
watch TV,
do all my homework,
hang with my sister,
draw a little,
have play practice
and still, get to bed before 10:00?
I must have been superhuman.

Sadly, I now see my mortality.
That relentless life I lived then is impossible for me now.
I only have two things to do for school
, but I can't even stay concentrated to do them.
I want to write, sing,
play my violin, talk to my sister,
there is the overlooking knowledge that I have to do school.

and so my energy,
what remained,

I'm really struggling in school this year- just a few thoughts I had.
