And that is where I start my atonement.
I didn’t understand the scientific principles of cause and effect yet.
I was deformed before I was fully formed.
And like a bad case of voodoo economics…. A history stuck on repeat.
A little girl with a tear stained cheek.
Perception distorted, facial expressions contorted.
And I stayed there in a narrow, dark place.
Until the limits of my perception broke…
I’ve made enough mistakes- to swallow them all at once- it would choke.
I’m not ready to be forgiven. But I am forever going to learn more, so I can do better-
I will never stop doing that for her, because she’s my daughter.
