Dear World

Dear World

A Poem by Taylor Williams

Obviously stated in the poem, my confession and admittance of the life I used to lead


Tonight I see my true reflection
Behind the cowards mask of my deceptions
For far too long misled perceptions
Lying to myself with such conviction
Let my life be my redemption
Dear world here's my confession
I've played too long the victim
Thought I changed when I still hurt them
I wish I could say that it was worth it
Every word I laced with lies
And every time I made them cry
I wish that I could make it right
Turn back the hands go back in time
But I can't change what's been written
I can only hope to be forgiven

Dear mother I feel I failed you
Another child that betrayed you
Dear father why I hate you
Because I see myself become you
Shelby I could never blame you
I was a fool for what I did to you
Frozen in time buried with regret
Ensuring I never once forget
Why I'm here this is what I get
I need your heart but I'll never deserve it

Dear world here lies my confession
Tonight I see my true reflection
I can't change what has been written
But I'll give my life for this redemption
Tonight I see my true reflection
I only hope I can be forgiven
