Inevitable

The legacy of losing oneself

Image by the Author

The compromises I made
were inherited,
shown as a sign of affection.
The legacy of losing oneself
due to an illusion,
sustained by the lack of strength
to make a change.
Dwelling in delusions
has a short span
but long consequences.
Shift is inevitable,
everything else is misbelief.
