Boxing With My Past

Boxing With My Past

By: Christopher Torres ∞

Here I am fighting my own shadow for my own identity. My shadow represents my hidden past, connected to me and it tells me who I am and where I come from. I am proud of my heritage, but I struggle to figure out if I should let my past represent who I am today, even if it is a past I wish to forget. All my life I’ve been told what my limitations were, which contradicted my beliefs. Now my life is like a puzzle, quickly jamming the pieces in the wrong places just to get an image of what is ahead in life.
