once i was courageous
once i was complete.
now i am this mess
now i cannot compete.

today i’m my doppelgänger
walking on this earth, freely.
sorry, my past me!
but you no longer exist.

In fiction and folklore, a doppelgänger (German “double walker”) is a paranormal double of a living person, typically representing evil or misfortune. In the vernacular, the word has come to refer to any double or look-alike of a person. (via wikipedia)
