I should have listened 



I was warned

I was scolded

I was schooled

Yet, I remained a fool



I thought I was magical

I thought I was a catalyst

I thought I was persuasive

Yet, I only heard advice that was dissuasive

I didn’t listen

I didn’t move on

I didn’t take heed

Yet, I felt I could stay at full speed


How wrong it all was

How wrong it all felt

How wrong that I was wronged

Yet, I waited till I no longer belonged

I should have listened

I should have left when you told me to

I should have not tried to be strong

Yet, now I know and will no longer be wronged
