november (db ii)

there’s no shame to be found
in who you once were
in the cages where you rusted
your rough patches, your growing pains

no, there’s just one way to earn shame:
by not doing our former cells justice
and embracing the humans we’re able to be now

life is one-night-only, never forever the same,
but always know that love is not in vain

no, your love is not in vain
