I'm burning all the old pictures
burning all my memories
burning the person i used to be
saying good bye to myself
or at least the old me
I'm ready to change
I'm gonna break free
the bondage and chains
are not to be seen
they're gone for good
I'm not turning back
not again not ever again
so good bye forever
to everything and everyone
after today
I'm different I'm new
I'm back to the really me
so take it like you see it
love me like me hate me
I'm done pretending done falling
I'm standing stripped
and bare as myself

    Don't let anyone tell you who to be. Live your own life, and never give up. Moving on is a crucial part of life. Short poem, but full of emotion.

    5/5. Keep up the good work!

    I love it. This piece was short, simple, but very enjoyable and well written. I liked the way you started it, because I feel it sometimes, a lot of the times. Saying goodbye to this me, and starting over. But I'm too stubborn to actually change. lol

    Love me like me hate me

    I love this line. 5/5

    Another very good write, I like this poem because many people feel the same way everyday and you managed to capture it in a very short and to the point poem. It is very well done.

    I thought the idea of the poem and being who your are, just stripped down and raw is good, but i dont think the repition of the word burning worked that well, it seemed to repitious and didnt quite work. Also i thought the line about love me like hate me was sort of cliche. Overall it was still good. 4/5
