just to be young​…

i just don't know what to say other than i am sorry that we've asked you to be burdened

i just don’t
know what to say
other than i am sorry
that we’ve asked you
to be burdened with living
something like warriors
to only give you afterwishes
and more of these i’m sorries
and i hope that someday soon
you get to feel safe
and that the only thing we
ask of you is just to be young.

and everything feels new
when i look at you
