Truth is eternal. Knowledge is changeable. It is disastrous to confuse them.

One tiny mistake
Miniscule compared to some of yours
One tiny mistake
Doesn’t everyone make them?

I could ask a million questions
Go back a million times
What if I thought about it sooner?
What if I noticed something wrong?
What if we arrived just seconds earlier?

What if—two words of no harm, but when mixed create chaos

It happens to everyone
Even someone as perfect as yourself
It happens to everyone

How can it be all my fault?
