What You Can’t Change

The truth about me is

I don’t care what happens to me

I stopped

A long time ago

Life is too short, too precious

To be forever caught up in what you didn’t

What you could’ve done better

What you could’ve said worse

Can always stoop lower

and time can’t change that

time won’t forgive you for that

and even though it hurts

some things should just stay buried

turn and don’t look back

time’s racing around the track

and while you’re wishing



for someone to magically improve you

the real

potential you

is long gone

we only get so many windows

so many chances

to do this right

why risk what you did

and couldn’t change

for what you haven’t

and every chance to?

I'm interested in hearing what you have to say
