I was told

I was told that I would feel something the last time
When there was nothing the first time
But no one mentioned that they didn’t know
Everyone said that they knew everything

I was told that it would only hurt a little
When it was meant to hurt a lot
But no one mentioned that they had hurt too
That it only hurt less in retrospect

I was told that I would understand when I was older
When I actually understood it better when I was younger
But no one mentioned they had forgot it too
Everyone though they were telling the truth

I was told I would be one thing
When I was really another
But no one actually knew
Everyone thought they were better

I said I would feel more the first time
And decide where I stood on the last
No one else could speak for me
Everyone could just listen
I know me

One thought on “I was told

  1. Raw. Real. On Point.
    Now, for open hearts as well as minds.
    Thank you, AA. Truer words were never spoken, or so well. 💗
