Remembering The Past (How I Know How)

Everyone knows Carly Curson. If you don't, have you been living under a rock for the past thirty years? With more Grammy awards than thought possible, a loving husband and three kids, her life appears to be a dream! Until a routine health check reveals three lumps. Now she knows she's dying, Carly wants to record all her life stories in an anthology. She always liked poetry, so it was an obvious choice for her...before she goes out with a bang.

5. CROSSING

That's what I did to State Borders,

To forests,

And to my own moral limits.

It wasn't stopping me though.

 

Multiple times I thought it was pointless,

Aged nineteen I forced myself to go on.

In the scuzziest of motel rooms,

Clutching my new US passport,

In my huge shirt that I slept in,

As spiders sat on my cherry-patterned socks.

 

I

Would

Never

Give

Up
