when i was told as a little girl. "think before you speak" i knew what mum was getting at and what dad tried to get me to do. but. now i'm older, only a little older than yesteryear. i was in a slumber. now i have turned to my night-dreams.
if i thought before i spoke. maybe i wouldn't have even said a single word. maybe i would have been so lost in my thoughts i would forget what i was saying. or thinking. no one would no what i meant when i thought about tomorrow afternoon. they would stare into my starry eyes and wonder why they even bothered to talk to me. would they? but i will never know. because. even when i hurt someone through simple sounds flowing from my mouth. i would still make them cry. kick. scream. yell. they would always know. that i never thought before i spoke.
or would they.
only a thirteen year old trying to make sense of her life. please read generously i would if i could but i cant.
