Every event shapes who we are.

When I was ten years old I accused her she said innocent, he said innocent. The jury has decided, the defendant is not guilty, court adjourned. I was smart at ten and I am smarter now, she lied to me, he lied to me. I couldn't prove her guilty because I was a child. And we wind up here, let's reverse this verdict, reopen the case, no longer am I easily overpowered.

New evidence tonight, surprising no one. Suddenly I am unstable. I went running and the sound of my breathing put aside these thoughts until I stopped, and now here I am wishing we could move back in time because we're too far deep in this to get out safely.
