Today’s the day I apologise to my younger self that I didn’t manage to become what she always wanted.
For every breach of promise,
I apologise to you.
I see every step away from your dreams
As a breach.
Not only promises set in stone,
Signed with your name in bloody letters
In a book somewhere
But dreams as well, your secret hopes
To be what I never rose to become
Going astray from them is bigger a breach,
As it cuts to the quiver, as it betrays our deepest secret
I apologise for letting you down
And letting you turn into an everyday family thing
Instead of the herald, or the star, or the Captain Amazing
Which you are
In your heart.
