Lessons

You taught me
How to take credit.
I will teach her
How to take responsibility.

You taught me
How to wipe out forests.
I will teach her
How to grow a garden.

You taught me
How to burn down bridges.
I will teach her
How to cross confidently. And kind.

You taught me
How a secret hurts.
I will teach her
How to trust her voice.

You taught me
How to break.
I will teach her
How to build.

And she will be good.
