Dear Self, I'm Sorry

Alexandra Lang is a 25 year old performer currently traveling the world, writing about her time around the universe.


Dear Self,

I'm sorry.

I'm sorry that you care so much about other people's thoughts that you have let them blind you to your own.

I'm sorry that you lay awake until all hours of the night trying to organize every unhinged thought that was set loose in your mind.

I'm sorry that when you do sleep, you dream about people you never wish to see again, and the places you wish you rather were.

I am sorry you believed the boy that compared you to moon when you wanted nothing more than to be the sun.

I am sorry that you trusted him when he told you everything would be okay while his hand measured the lengths of your thigh.

I am sorry you believed him when he said he loved you.

Dear Self,

I am a work of art; a canvas that hangs on the wall of some overly expensive museum that people spend hours staring at, just trying to figure out the meaning behind it.

Dear Self,

Do not be sorry.
