I got distracted today but I have a poem I wrote about a week ago for today’s post.
I knew you when
I knew you when you were born weighing less than 6 pounds too new to be cute so much anticipation leading up to this new life with infinite possibilities a bundle of cells that needed more time to grab a clean slate a baby
I knew you when you started school so sure of yourself no hesitation no looking back you were sent off day one excited to learn to meet new people to become the person you wanted to be
I knew you when you had doubts about your worth the way others saw you this year you could fall short I knew you then but never believed you could fail
I knew you when you were hurt when you were naïve and oblivious I saw when you were happy and I knew you would be happy again never the same but also never could you be hurt this way again
I knew you when you thought about giving up in the end stretch of the worst year of your life no one saw it at the time giving in would have been the worst way of getting them to notice but I need you for that part and the parts that came before it
I knew you when good night became goodbyes when everyone seemed fine and crying was inevitable for a long time I’ve known you were going to make it out alive but leave your past self behind in the process. Innocence dies at the price of living. We both know that now.
Tomorrow I am going to a concert and have work. Big kick off weeked for summer. I will try to post again something light and full of pictures. Till then, Happy reading !
