What I wish I knew

when I was 15

that boys who smell smoke

and have pretty eyes

boys who seduce you

with their smile

are the people 

you should stay away from.

 

What I wish I knew 

when I was 17

that beauty pageants 

aren't everything

when you are measured

for your physical looks

and not what's inside your soul

think again, and run.

 

What I wish I knew 

when I was 21

when I went to college

that monsters aren't green

or purple

but they're real people

in your life.

 

I wish I did things I never did

and never did things I did

wish I had known todayhttp://letterstoself.weebly.com

what I did not know yesterday...
