Because, paths and oaths
I would, I would have done things differently, desperately
Who am I if I’m not who you want me to be
It started with the ringing in my ears
The sourness up my nose
Suddenly tears roll
Then it start again

"Tell the pain I said goodbye. Tell goodbye I said hello."
A stunning poem from the 2014 Rustbelt Regional Poetry Slam.
