Left It Behind (Undated Poem) – most likely written between 2007 and 2010

Left it Behind

i left behind,
the pretensions of my teenage years
when,
i,
as a younger person
tried so (too) hard
my gnarled anger
when,
i,
knew not to be myself
a turgid photograph
hair hung over one angry eye
when,
i,
thought i knew it all
in a torrent of tears
i left it behind,
the pretensions of my teenage years
