Dear Younger Self
What happened to you back then wasn't your fault.
The things you wanted, but you didn't have wasn't your fault.
If things didn't go your way, believe me- it wasn't your fault.
I know you cried incessantly and felt an irredeemable pain- It wasn't your fault.
You were weak and vulnerable, but hey, it was never your fault.
It's me who's lost all those times...
It's me who's not paying attention and wasn't around.
Now that you found your way home.
You are stronger and fearless this time.
Dear younger self, I got you now!
