I wish I could turn back the hands of ti…wait no, that’s a lie, I don’t wish that one bit.

What I do wish is that I could have been a lot more lenient on my younger self. I wish I could have given myself more love, more time and quite frankly, the ability to express my inner self without getting uncomfortable. I wish I had thrown myself into my books during my matric year so that I could also be recognised. I wish, I wish…

I do not necessarily want to go back and change stuff – what happened has happened. These are only my wishes and I think if they are really for me, then they’ll decide when to manifest in the far future.

The time remains unchanged.
