If I could turn back time

If I could turn back time.

I would have played by myself.

I would have gone far enough away so I couldn’t hear your voices.

I would have learned to run faster.

If I could turn back time.

I wouldn’t have gone to your house.

I wouldn’t have let you touch me.

I wouldn’t have let you rape me.

I would have told my mom.

If I could turn back time.

I wouldn’t have eaten my lunch in the cafeteria.

I wouldn’t have believed you when you said you were my friend.

I wouldn’t have tolerated your bullying.

If I could turn back time.

I wouldn’t have left you that morning.

I would have talked to you more.

I would have learned CPR.

If I could turn back time.

I wouldn’t have let you hit me.

I wouldn’t have let you abuse me.

I walked away from you.

I can’t turn back time so….

I’m going to heal.

I’m going to speak loudly for justice.

I’m going to stand up to oppression.

I’m going to love myself.
