Time travel

Time travel

What is the one reason we want to be able to time travel
So we can change our past

For the longest time, I thought this same way
Every time I did something bad or wrong I would think to myself
If only I could turn back the clocks.

But the older I got and the more I thought about this I started to realize
If time travel existed
And I went back in time to change my past
Then I would be who I a today

Every mistake I have made in the past has made me stronger brave more powerful.
But it also taught me valuable life lessons and how to abound sticky situations.

Without life experts, we would be a nobody with no purpose
And yes a lot of my past has cut my skin deep and left huge scars
And it messes with my mind every time I think about it
But these messy thoughts have led me to some amazing people and helped me through the pain.

So I say screw time trave
Because I like who I am
I like my messed up insecure mind
Because that's who I am and the harsh truth is I can't change that.

(But like for real if time travel did exist we would already know about it.)
