Say I told you to shut up
Say I politely asked you to stop
Say I honestly told you how I was feeling
Say I didn’t try to be the bigger person
Say I didn’t close the chat window.
I remember when I had to be encouraged to get uncomfortable, to take risks.
I remember when I got into silly fights about things that no longer really matter.
I remember crying about a life I’d kill for now.
I think about when you were young
we all were. I assumed we’d know more by now.
Not better, but more. Is it better now?
I dare say it is.
