Once (Part 1 of 10)

Once I was very young and idealistic
I thought I'd change the world
Then I realised
that the people closest to you hurt you the most
In no time at all, I was a legal adult
Barely out of my teens
A little bit bruised, but not yet battered
Still full of fire and excitement
I went into the world
Buffeted by the waves of life
Fell in love
And realised
That a lover can hurt you the most
Beat you
Bruise you
Break you
And suck out your soul
Leaving you more than a bit bruised
And a whole lot battered
