A Poem For My Alterego

A Poem For My Alterego

And you will never hurt me again

An alter ego is your worst self; it is the complete opposite of who you are, almost like a devil side to you that you never knew you had unless it comes out when you are sad or angry.

Sad, distressed, and confused

That is what you want me to be

You want me to suffer

And lose every time

You bring me to my lowest

And never are afraid to drag me behind

But I have this little message for you so then you know I changed my mind

I am growing up way past you

If you think you are out to get me, you better think again

In my time of need I had people near by

You may have made your visits abrupt but you never took over

But all you do is wish the worst on me

And I will never let that down

Now that your battles have lost and mine took a great victory

The mistakes I made will never die

Because you will remind me of them again

Just because I remember my mistakes does not mean anything bad

It reminds me of who you want me to be and of who I once was

People make mistakes and that cannot change, ever

But I know one thing is for sure, I will never let you control me again.

Good bye alter ego, for now that is.

You may come back but not anytime soon

Because I have grown up way past you

And you will never hurt me again.

I couldn't have done it without you.


Well, the day has finally come, the day I walk across that stage and have finally earned that diploma. Through the countless hours of studying, the numerous mental breakdowns, and the late nights, I survived.

As I sit here waiting for them to call my name, I can't help but think back on how the past four years went. I can't help but think about all that you have done for me and how I cannot thank you enough.

I couldn't have done it without you. Thank you.

Thank you for the never-ending support.

Thank you for providing me with an environment where I could grow, a place to call home, and a place to return to.

Thank you for pushing me to achieve my dreams and always supporting them no matter what. Thank you for pushing me to get through the tough times and encouraging me to challenge myself.

Thank you for being there for me through the many tears.

Thank you for reminding me that it is okay to take some time and breathe when I felt like everything was getting more and more difficult.

Thank you for teaching me how to prioritize and how to manage my time.

Thank you for the endless advice on what to do with my future, how to handle the challenges, and how to just manage being human.

I could not have gotten through those four years of school without you. I hope to be just as generous, supporting, and as loving as you are.

Thank you.
