One shot

Updated: Mar 24, 2022

I wish I could go back,

unsay the things that hurt,

take back my careless actions,

get it all right first.

I am just a human,

I will make mistakes,

despite my best intentions,

everything cannot be great.

There are things you cannot edit,

there are words you can't erase,

apologies don't always fix things,

broken things will not unbreak.
