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 failing to do our former cells justice
and not 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
