Brand New

I’ve made some pretty awful decisions in my life. Some made me lose my grip, and some, well, some almost convinced me that I was a horrible person. I’ve lost friends. I’ve given up hope more times than I should. I’ve succumbed to self-hate for too long, that I still wonder why I haven’t hurt myself.

Even though I’ve been to such, excuse me for the term, shitty places, I know I must have done something good, something right. And all of those decisions and regretful memories seem trifling and negligible now that I have you.

You make me feel brand new.
