what did i see in a penny?

maybe all we have

all we ever had

was then

it's as though

nothing exists

but our mistakes

and how we should have dealt with them

but didn't


we seem to fill the space

the silence

with arguing

arguing that goes nowhere

what do i honestly think

will change

will be different

you put a penny in my hand

and i didn't understand

didn't know

that it meant nothing

no one sees what i see

or saw

so everyone has their opinions

that i can find truth in

to an extent

but i know

you weren't always

like this
