Poem for the day:

“an apology to my younger self”

I apologize to my younger self
for not cherishing you more
those days of carefree play
opening presents on Christmas day
lounging on the couch with dad
or watching mom bake a cake
I should have loved those thick
ponytails instead of praying
for silky straight hair
I should have never tossed
away my dolls for the great
boyfriend who never came
those days are now long gone
and those faces have all aged
I wish I hugged you tighter
instead of rushing you away
