There are people who will whisper that you were a mistake under their cold breath on what you thought was a warm day. Red veins will appear in their eyes and more smoke than usual with pass through their chapped lips. With swollen eyes and a shaking strained voice they will let you know what they thought about you all along. And when you don’t give the tearful performance they were hoping to attend, they will unearth your vulnerable layer and use it against you.
There are people who will yell your name so familiary across the airport as they pick you up, turning a cold day of travel into a warm day of making up for time in the backseat of their car. Their eyes will light up and they will spend the drive home kissing your hand across the consul. And with swollen eyes and a shaking strained voice they will share words that are the missing pieces of your own. And when you give the tearful performance they were hoping to attend, you will share your most vulnerable layer with them.
Which type will you choose? I’ll tell you one thing— you are never a mistake.
