One More Chance by Opeyemi Odeyale

I looked at the mirror
And it reflected what I am
Sad, rejected, filled with regrets
 This is not who I want to be
This isn’t me

Time please be my friend and let me start again 
Give me this chance
I want to grow up  again
Maybe only this time 
I’d live my life right
I would consider the roads not taken
And decisions not made
Apologies not said, love not shown
Feelings I hid, ones I rejected
Smiles not expressed, laughter’s I suppressed 
Anger not released, tears not shed

Give me another chance to make wrongs right
Give me another chance I want to grow up once again
