Endings are not always as peaceful as  sunsets 

Beginnings are not as beautiful as sunrises 

And journeys aren’t as painless as they are portrayed 


And I always though that if I could’ve erased the past 

Erased how we started

Everything you destroyed 

Everything you’d tarnished 

Would’ve been glued back together 

That maybe they never would’ve broken 


I thought that maybe if things could’ve been done differently 

Everything wouldn’t have been left so fragile and breakable 

That if things had been different 

Then maybe things would be better 


Because things could’ve been better than that right? 

I could’ve had a better beginning 

One without as much pain 

Then my journey would’ve been less painful 

And our ending wouldn’t be left with this unsettling silence 

wouldn’t have ended with words unsaid 


But if our beginning had been more beautiful 

And our journey less painful 

And our ending more peaceful 

How would I have changed? 

Ive thought about this a lot

How things being different could’ve changed me 


For starters

Your morals 

I don’t agree with them at all

If we’d stayed with each other during our journey 

I could’ve come to side with your morals

And honestly, I despise that idea


Your lack of respect or general caring for others 

I feel would’ve made me into a worse human being

My caring for others feelings is something I deeply care about

I try my hardest not to hurt others 

And be there to fix things if I do

While you leave other to pick up the pieces from your mistakes


Your work ethic isn’t something I strive for 

I want to work to achieve something 

I want to help people in their lives 

Not sleep at home all day 

Staying with you could’ve changed that 


You could’ve made me let go of my dreams just to make you happy 

And letting go of my future plans just because it doesn’t suit you 

Isn’t something I wanted to do 


And I know for a fact 

I don’t want to be the type of parent you are 

I don’t want to lead in your example 


Everything about me could’ve changed 

Probably would’ve changed 

The family, friends, and life I have would’ve been vastly different 


Endings are not always as peaceful as  sunsets 

Beginnings are not as beautiful as sunrises 

And journeys aren’t as painless as they are portrayed 

But ours, it was perfect for us. 

I like who I am now. 

I like my life. 


And continuing or changing our story 

I would’ve compromised my self 

And despite the pain of what went down between us 

That isn’t something I’m willing to do.

Just for a chance at a different result
