A Fresh Start
Every time you meet someone new
Who takes interest in you as a person
That's a fresh start
This person judges you in that moment
For who they perceive you to be
It's truly a gift
Eventually, the past catches up
Especially if yours is particularly dark
But between that time and the present
You have a chance to convince this person
That you're worth believing
And that the past is really
Just the past.
Don't ruin it.
