My past seems to be here to stay,
Why won't it just go away?
I have made some mistakes in my life,
And still to this day they cut through me like a knife.
There was a time where I was selfish and mean,
To people who loved me and was only trying to help me be redeemed.
And now that I have changed it is hard for people to see
The real me.
But I know it's my fault,
And trust was lost.
And now I know that every day
I must prove myself and not be lead astray.
To the people who have only ever tried to help and love me,
I hope you will one day see
That I have changed and you can trust the new me.
I sincerely regret the mistakes I have made,
And hope to be forgiven of them one day.
