Would I rather be
A younger me?
More productive
Stronger
Would i have to give up
Lessons learned?
How I’ve learned
To understand
Weakness in others
Through my own?
That you can’t control
Everything
But that younger me
Could i just have
Her feet?
Her knees?
Her stregnth?
But I have her beat
In strength
Of character
In confidence
I can cook better than her
We are not supposed to compare
To just be the best version of me
But can I please have her knees?
