Me In True Colors (Unpoetic)

I ponder over and over again
on moments which became milestones
but for which
I wouldn't have been
Me

Looking back I see
Cris-cross roads
some traveled more, some less,
which got me
Here

I am left with reminisces
of regrets, promises, opportunities, failures,
I look at them as a collage
in shades and hues of
Me

A look in the mirror
shows me in true colors
I shrug, I smile
realizing I am just an
Amateur

I step aside
to let it all pass
like water under the bridge
to start all over from
Scratch

So I have read this and seems to be a very modest look at ones self, I believe with all my heart that actually your first stanza is redundant, try to read from
Looking back I see, it's a very beautiful poem and I adore your end lines, we all start from scratch don't we we all have a story and that's why I really like this piece. Thought provoking.

Thank you...Teddy

Thanks Teddy for reading and your comment. The title itself mentions that it is unpoetic because I know I am just an amateur.

a quote from Paul Velery " a poem is never finished just abandoned" maybe you have lost your magic along the way but i feel to say we are all ametuers if not what would we be? maybe its time to retake the fire and put it in your heart. I know you have it. Not that i want to break your balls sir, but look at this

i could not have written this any better ever, and applies to all of us! Just making a point. I should be on holiday but my son apparently prefers his friends to me lol so i have some free time to spend here.

Thank you...Teddy
