darling, why do you allow such things
to come into your life?
(and you say "oh but she never knew any better")
oh, all the repercussions of a life not lived
or role models for parents
i'm so tired of this.
i wish i could hold your hand and guide you through this simple life that i live
and make you see that there are good people
that men are not monsters
all the time
that women are not out to get you
or hurt you
or steal from you
that sometimes, there are genuine moments
that sometimes, it is ok to laugh and mean it
that sometimes, it is good to smile and feel it
i'm so sorry for everything you've never felt.
