for never following instructions
never coloring between the lines
& for never finishing my homework on time.
for not paying attention
not sticking to plans
& for not being more determined.
for the lies I told
the excuses I made
& for the promises I didn’t keep.
for giving up too easily
always changing my mind
& for not wanting a more ordinary life.
for my hypersensitivity
& for never thinking things through.
& know that I tried
know that I cared
& know, that deep down,
I always wanted to do better.
