Last Day on Earth

You can’t take your life back
once you’ve given it away.

I could say it was a trick.
I could claim I didn’t know
what I was getting myself into
and you shouldn’t really
expect me to shoulder
the blame for expectations
I was born with or into.

But I will give you everything
because nothing makes me happier
than knowing that no matter how
scary this world tends to be
you will always be there to
protect me from the things
I fear the most even if
I’m the one who
invited them in
in the first place.
