Dear past self

By: Jules Sherwood

Dear past self,
 
I know you love that tree,
But I wish I could tell you not to name it.
 
I know you think you’re being clever,
But I wish I could tell you not to try so hard.
 
I know you want a puppy more than anything,
But I wish I could tell you you’re not ready.
 
I know you hate doing the dishes,
But I wish I could tell you to be grateful.
 
Make more friends
 
Go outside
 
Fail a test once in a while
 
Try other toothpaste
The one you like is expensive.
 
I wish I could tell you to sing
More often
 
I wish I could tell you to be less afraid.
I wish I could tell you to take better care of yourself.
