I thought I knew who you were
I see now you were a lesson to learn
And all I am to you now
Is a bridge that’s been burned
I look back over things in my life, people I’ve known, and the 20/20 is priceless. I can’t believe I didn’t see some things that I can see now. I can’t believe there were people I didn’t see for who they are. I can’t believe there are people I allowed to tell me who I am in their eyes. People I allowed close to me when in the back of my mind I knew I shouldn’t. Can’t believe I let things get so outta control just so it wouldn’t seem like I couldn’t have faith, couldn’t believe.
I’m just rambling of course. But I’m still surprised. At myself. At the sheer audacity of people and the way they’ve treated me. At myself and the people I’ve allowed in my life, at how I’ve allowed myself to be perceived.
I should’ve let go sooner.
Hindsight is a muthafucka.
