YAY! 40 STORIES! NO WAY IN SHELL! *sobs* I can't believe it!

I don't own TMNT. Nick does ¬¬ (Damn!)


I promised them I would never fail

I promised I would never let them down.

I promised them I was gonna be

a great brother,

a great friend

and leader…

for them.

Where did I go wrong?

In which part of my life I failed them?

When did I start to lose them?

When did I become such a monster,

a stranger,

an enemy to them?

What was happening to me?

Why was I changing so drastically?

Why I was hurting the ones I promised to protect?

I broke my promise.

I broke the promise I had with my family,

my team,

my friends,

my brothers,

my father.

I turned into my worst enemy.

I turned into the monster which once I promised

I would destroy.

I failed.

That's what I am.

A failure.

Nothing but a failure.

I'm sorry.

I'm sorry I couldn't keep my word,

I'm sorry I hurt you,

I'm sorry I let you down;

I'm sorry I wasn't the brother,

the leader,

the friend you needed.

But the words will never cure the pain

I made you feel. No, never.

Words are just that: Words.

I can't change the past.

I change what it was meant to be.

No matter how hard I'll try

My failure will haunt me forever.

Because there are some promises

just hard to keep.

Leo was all dark and moody on Season 4 until his trip to Japan when he met The Ancient One.

Here, some thoughts of the blue masked ninja while he walked alone trying to find this new sensei.
