NaPoWriMo – Day 13 (Non-Apology)

Today’s National Poetry Writing Month (NaPoWriMo) prompt is: Write a non-apology for the things you’ve stolen.

If I could,

I would,

steal time,

make it mine,

to rewind.

I’d be young again,

playing street hockey,

with neighborhood friends,

without a care in the world.

Or I’d be the girl,

young and free,

exploring my new city,

enjoying the mystery,

of a long life ahead,

with no regrets.

I’d find more time,

to read and write,

and make things right.

I’d do all the things I said I’d do,

and I’d make no apology,

for finding a way back to me,

and you.
