For what I did to you.
You said I broke your heart,
Crushed your dreams,
Left you for dead on the side of the road.
But who was I, the author of those villainous deeds,
And who were you, the victim of my treachery,
Entangled in our delirious drama so long ago.
We were both just children then
And all our molecules and atoms have since been replaced
By billions more.
By hurting, we have been hurt.
By changing others, we have been changed.
By living, we have been humbled.
How can you say that you can never forgive someone
Whom you have never known?
