“The one’s you were given, Not The One’s you wanted”

“The one’s you were given, not the one’s you wanted”

This, it seems, you could change,
altering first the tone,
then the tenacity,
those abuses, it is true, only some parents
unleash and leave behind
for us to pack away.

And we are exactly like that,
It seems, packed away
in the bruises and regions
our memory
wants to elope from
but somehow cannot grab enough air
to do so.

To the root, this river
and ongoing for many years
this ongoing.
Heavy rain, we are the debris
of that hurt, the first moment
of our worlds being confused
where they should been reassured.
