    I wish I could go back into time

    and prevent my mother from abusing me so long, with me just taking her blows. I should've fought back but I thought I'd be disrespecting her.

    I've don't too many mistakes

    and some I just want to fix badly! Why can life be easy on us? why do we have to live in love and fear? I once missed the opportunity to get a boyfriend, but I was too late and didn't make the move in time! Can life just get any better?

    I miss someone alot..

    . And now they've moved away. We don't talk, and we pretend we're strangers. There's always a chance that one day I could see them again, but if I could just rewind time to have them back here with me... Life would be perfect ??

    I would love to go back in time,

    just to see how people really lived. I want to see the minutiae of daily life: buying food, cooking, going to school, going to work, simple things. I'm not interested in seeing Important Historical Events or attempting to meet Important People--just average people doing average...

    I wish I could go back in time.

    There are people who I wish I never met, there are other moments where I wish I had or hadn't done something. But everything happens for a reason, and that's how it's going to be.

    Going through another lifetime of the unknown

    and uncertainty is too scary. The life I have now is fine. It might not be perfect, at least, I have gotten through it alive.

    If I had a way to hop between my time

    and a time of my choosing I'd be a tourist. Be able to live in an earlier time and see sights that might no longer be there. Drive around the states before the interstate system was around. And make investments of course.

    I would go to 1998 and tell my dad

    that in a few years he would be diagnosed with aids and die a few months before my second birthday. Maybe he'd still be here and I wouldn't be forced to live with Satan's mistress.

    Back In Time...

    I wish I could go back in time, back when our love was new. So I could carefully remind myself, of all the things I’ll do for you. All the sacrifices I will make, proving my love is true. All the things that I’ll give up, not seeing you coerced me to. Kept close to you under...

    On the surface I think it's safe to say

    that I am successful. Big house, six figure income and a great career to go with it, but when I look at some of my past choices I want to travel back in time and smack the crap out of myself. I dated a lot of women that were users and always stayed longer than I should have...
