because I felt

she tells me now

of the times

I wanted to end this

end myself

help create shame

diminish me in some way

because I felt

deep on my failures

those things I did then

that did not work out

but I picked myself up

started over again

swearing never to forget

so here we are

still kicking

trying pushing on

because I felt

& try as she might

she cannot shame

hurt me now

because I felt

& that

never earns any of that
