One step at a time.
Where is the rewind button
to undo all the mistakes you’ve made
to erase all the lies you’ve uttered
to rebuild the trust you’ve shattered?
Bring me back to my childhood
when I didn’t worry about the future
when I didn’t care about pleasing others
when I didn’t… know so much, too much.
Why did you have to let me see the side of you
that you hid so well all these years
that I never expected to see
that I never wanted to unveil?
Ignorance is bliss.
“Once you know some things, you can’t unknow them. It’s a burden that can never be given away.” – Alice Hoffman
