The Past: The Present

The past
where all my hopes floated in the atmosphere
where I used to think that dreams came true
that life was perfect
where I once believed that the future held great things
that nobody could take that feeling away from me
the past
although my recognition is blurred
I remain apprehensive
aware that the past was all a lie

The Present
where the realization that my entire life has been unfaithful
where I am now capable of sharing my true thoughts and feelings
that the judgemental ones can't reach me
where I once felt scared and trapped by those that are cruel
that nobody would help me, nor care
the present
I now see reality
and I am confident that life as I used to know it
is the death of those who show their weakness
