it’s no secret
i write about the same person
again and again
and maybe i should be bored
of the same things
but that’s the problem
you never stop noticing the things
and you never stop loving
the things you discover
You sit there with your head in your hands. What is going on? You try to pick up the pieces as your life continues to spiral down. It gets harder and harder with each passing moment. Unbelievable. You worked so hard to get to where you are at, and now this bombshell is the talk of the town. All of this stems from the past. To this very day, your past has been following you, waiting for the perfect time to strike. One mistake was all it was, only growing more as time flew by. All it took was one mistake to ruin you. Forget all the good times. This is how you will be remembered. Regardless of the repeated apologies and remorse, it’s going to be hard to get out of this one.
Everyone is flawed and everyone has a story to tell. There are things we wished we could take back. Things we said, things we did. You can leave the scene of the crime, but it will never leave your mind. The guilt will rack up. All of those that stood behind you will start to fade away because of what you did. They wanted you; they counted on you, but you drove them away. Now you are alone. You’ve hit rock bottom and it feels like there’s no way out.
Look up at me and open your eyes. It’s just a setback. This is a challenge.
Yes, people can be quick to pick you up, but they can be even quicker to put you down. They are quick to judge. I can see the sadness and regret in your face, but this won’t change anything. You have to rebuild yourself and repair these severed ties. Vow to do better? Do what you have to do, but don’t go back on your word. Be the bigger person. Make a comeback. Strive to make things right. Live a life where others will tell your story. Be remembered as someone admirable and accomplished, not a constant disappointment. You can make it out of this; I believe in you. Get out of this broken state of mind. Redeem yourself. Go from Regret.To.Redemption.
"I hope you know,
I swear I’ve never done this before,
And I care, I’m so sorry
Scarred you for life, please come back to me,
Down on my knees, repeating apologies”
Don’t mind the time, the day, the event. Just sit down and reflect. The things that we take for granted are the things that we should be ultimately thankful for. The people I’ve met, the places I’ve been, and the things I’ve seen. I will forever hold these close to my heart. To those that love me, I promise to love them back. All things handed to me, I will accept and appreciate.
Apologies from this soul for when it appears to be ungrateful. I realize this now, and I truly am sorry. As I look up at the night sky, with tear-stained cheeks, I hope and pray that I will be forgiven and that something good will happen. That all will work out well and that we do not suffer. We did not mean for this to happen, and we long for it to get better. There is a plan, I just do not know what it is.
Until the end of time, no matter what happens, I vow to remain forever Thankful.Thankful.Thankful.
