Why do we choose to let:
our insecurities, doubts, negative natures and the like
take hold of our throats and 
suffocate us in these choppy waters.

Choosing the depths of the darkness was a silly idea,
dear child, listen to me!
Please stop; but these decisions are not theirs to make 
remember these people whom you have chosen to forsake

When we finally look back we see;
hindsight always sheds light for thee when there is little positivity
in the end we learn always -
Strive on, young one, and just be unforgivingly ‘me’
