Making Me

All Rights Reserved ©


A child to a girl, a girl to a woman, a woman to a ghost, a ghost to a soul. Which one am I now? A collection of personal and heartbreaking poems questioning identity, love, anxiety, growing up, depression, and how much our experience shapes us. Series of poetry written during the Covid-19 Outbreak to help me get through being stuck at home for months. March 2020 - August 2020 *NOTE*I only own the cover page and a few pieces of the other art*

it doesn’t really matter

if people change

or they always stay the same

if you’re a better person now

after years spent learning

who you are

because i once knew you

there’s no fearing

what you learned were new tricks

a dogs at ten looks the same as a dog at two

and you will always be the one

that bit the hand that fed you

even all healed up

shed down to a new layer of skin

the scar is still there

below the surface

this tattoo isn’t so i never forget

or to cover up the pain

ignore the marks

it’s because i’m a different person now

the only person who’s change matters
