Youth

A feeling of unease 

Washes over me

At the thought—

Memories of

A self destructive girl

Day dreaming

Constantly

Wishing for 

The future 

To rescue her

I would not 

Relive 

Those years

If

I had 

Only been

Confident and fearless

Rather than 

Angry and insecure

Where 

Would I be today?
