Dear Young Me,
I was only able to postpone the inevitable but we were doomed to fail
I know you were genuine and believed things could change
I'm sorry you poured all your soul into vessels of people and goals that sailed away with the wind
I know you foresaw all of that yet continued to fight
You wanted the world to unfold naturally and not dictate it for your own gain
You valued pain and agony for they had all of the best tunes
Took this chaotic journey looking for meaning
Used to hark and hear people crying "What is this that's come to pass?"
While you cry out Alas! Alas!
Trying to outsmart a fate that you now atone
Filled with ire, with a heart that's hard as stone
You might have thought you wouldn't give up but I did
You believed in meaning well I found none!
The glory and the freshness of a dream.
It is not now as it hath been of yore;
The things which you have seen I now can see no more
I'm really sorry for not finding the purpose you yearned for
You were the best part of me !
