What if they hadn’t walked in that fateful day,
revealing all my mistakes and regrets?
What if i never dragged the blade across my skin,
leaving permanent reminders for me of my pain,
What if I never hit send,
never having to deal with the shame and the secrets,
What if I never picked up a pen and paper,
Finding an escape from reality?
Would I still be the same?
What if my past never happened?
All my trials that have made me a better person.
Where would I be without that?
