Dear Old Self

You should have said no when they asked you to lie
Or screamed to their faces it’s their fault, don’t be shy

You should have bought your father slippers on the time it’s needed
Maybe he’d be happier would have bragged and smiled

Remember when the old man expected you to give
You overlooked what he needed you were so insensitive

Should have been more careful when you were pregnant with your child
Maybe she would have been here the family isn’t sad

You should have been this and you should have been that
More regrets coming in hurting pain makes you flat

Dear old self may you learn from all those “have beens”
And this time, oh this time make sure your life wins.
