you were a phase.

like the 3 years in middle school

when I had to wear braces.

like the time i was 7

when i decorated my whole room pink.

like the school year

when i thought i needed every color of skinny jeans.

like the times throughout my childhood

when i believed i wasn’t good enough.

like the week in elementary school

when i wrote in only cursive.

like the 10 years

when i wanted to be a professional athlete.

you were just a phase.

yet you are a part of who i am.

but like the moon,

i have to start new.
