Apathy. Cynicism. Envy. Shame. Emotions that flood my thoughts day to day. This darkness, This plague; It has hollowed my heart. It has shattered my spirit and all feeling is lost. This ghost has a name.
Regret is the weight of the burden I bear. It's all that I've lost when I said, "I don't care." It's the lies that I forced myself to believe. Opportunities I've lost in the name of ignorance.
I no longer remember who I see in the mirror. A fellow, that I, have never seen before. Is it him? Is it me? Was I blind, now I see? The truth can be painful, but I must believe.
