A New Tag – Written Friday 2nd November 2012 (Aged 37)

A New Tag

things have changed
my name,
it feels like it has a new tag
i have spent too long lately
just feeling sad
and worrying about expectation
so i will change the situation
and i will take control
i will not give freely
i will not try to save the world
even though, it needs to feel less cold
i am tired of feeling old
let different things take hold
things have changed
people look to me
and expect answers
or feel apologetic over how i feel
i am full of flaws
but that is what makes real
things have changed
and changed all of how i feel
