A Thought

You gave me everything

Guilt and shame, too much pain

I gave you my youth

My best years gone away

Losing sight of myself

Before I’ve really begun

Forgetting what I could become

Perhaps it never was

Just as a mirage

I won’t give you all the blame

I should have done better

Tried harder, just walked away
