past decisions (freeverse)

 

flickers of shade within this memory,
a rest stop to view and be grateful 

twilight of characters
unique in their time 
-all me

a different shade for every colour, 
i thank all of you for making me, 
father figures of my destiny,
my fate inscribed in your actions 

consequences still swimming,
flowing in this river,
forever changing the speed 
as time changes people

 5 years, 3 years, 2 years

thank the years, 
thank myself in remembrance
