My Mistake

Jayvon Pegus

Every mistake I have ever made was made chasing a place of safety a place where I was sure my demons could not follow and with everyone I found they arrived there before I did my heart pounds in its chest where it should rest fear overcomes the senses while climbing fences running away from danger a result of my anger bitter words, the wrong time a victim of my own crime everything I am is a lie let rest where and be reborn.
