That one time
I wanted to marry this guy
Spend the rest of my life with him,
Not realizing what a train wreck he was
How terrible it would have been.
How I would have clawed my way out of it
Begging for it to be over
For the pain to stop..
I’m glad I didn’t get my way.

That one time
I was laying in bed
Not wanting to get up
Just wanting the world to stop
To shut up
To stop hurting me.
I wanted to die
Right then and there.
I’m glad I didn’t get my way.

Sometimes life
Is wiser than we are
Things don’t work out
Like we planned.

For a reason.
