The mistake I made
Was not daring to cry
If you looked in my eyes
They’d just Shimmer and shine

The mistake I made
Was not daring to scream
I’d lock it away
And throw away the key

Now I cry
Even if I don’t know why
Now I scream
Just to let off steam

My heart, now lighter
My smile, now broader
My mistakes, hope fewer
As I grow older and wiser
