April 12

how could I have failed to protect you
in that moment when you needed me most
my heart will forever bleed

when your judgement had faltered
as wolves removed their skin
how could I have failed to protect you

I was trapped in the tunnel of my own confusion
and never heard you scream for me
in that moment when you needed me most

raged with spite,
the ground disappears beneath my feet
my heart will forever bleed

I believe that every life is full of endless moments that help you, hurt your, change you, inspire you, and allow you to mold yourself into the best version of yourself that you can possibly be. Stories exist in all of us and need to be shared in order to grow.
