Mistakes

I got a nosebleed considering a TikTok about spanking. Telling me to make a mistake So I can learn new things, spread my wings, Set myself free into the privilege of trying. And all at once I was back on my parents' bed Blowing out the candle so I'd stop crying, Until I was blue in the face and his finger tipped over, And each infraction was him, lying. Now the stakes are higher, feels like playing with fire, All my life I've turned new pages, told I was less than need required, But I'm reaching out with both arms stretching wider To hold the world with every breath inspired And if I burn, I burn.
