New life

What became of me, where did I slip off at
A past long forgotten stirs inside of me
Memories and photographs

Faces long forgotten, names I'll never recall
but voices in my mind, 
flashes before the fall

Today is new, and yesterday is past
fresh is time, today will last....
only for a moment

Awake today, from a dark black hole
thank God for friends who care...

Mortality is real today
when death seemed only a breath away

    Michael, I decided to come to the bottom of your page and I see that you posted very wisely for your first one! How appropriate to have this one entitled New Life as the beginning of your posts here at Soup! I see that you are drawn to free verse and to reflective poetry. That is wonderful!! My favorite part of this is when you mixed in a bit of rhyming and what you were saying:today is new, and yesterday is past. .. today will last. . . only for a moment. So sadly true!

    P.S--The last two lines here, are very close to me. Very impressive to me. I engage in some dangerous work, and I know the feeling of having death seem just a breath away. I am no expert, and I don't want to lecture. You have some rhymes here, but could also call this 'free verse.' I noticed that you have 'I do not know'listed as your form. The reason I am telling you, is there are a bunch of people who claim that they simply skip over "I dont know." It is elitist. But you might get more reads

    Welcome to Poetrysoup, Michael! I went right to the beginning of your list here. Thank you for the kind comments on my amateur work! It means a lot to me. Uhmmm, just don't look too deeply into some of my...."stranger" poems ok? Haha! I am a spiritual person who cares....I just enjoy writing outside of the box, and thinking too much~Chris
