No Regrets (XXVIII)

No Regrets

Looking back upon the past,
I see the mistakes I made,
and wonder…would it be
different had I not? Would life
be so grand, had I just
not acted the fool?
Would I be rich, famous,
have my own star?
Or would I be
dirt poor—tossing myself
in front of the next car?
We all have things
we wish we didn’t do,
but do we ever think
the ramifications through?
What’s could have been
should have been;
What’s might have been
never ever was.
Yet through it all, I now know
I wouldn’t change a thing,
I’d do it all again, just so
For I have no remorse,
no regrets…life’s too short
to find oneself trapped in that port.

    Excellent point darling. I have often wondered what things would be like had I made some different decisions. Who knows, could have ended up worse! *kisses*

      I’m pretty sure it would be worse. Would I have ever met you if we did things differently? :O

    A great write, one I am with 100% whenever I get maudlin about the past and whether I should have/should not have done this or that I stop and think “yes, but think of the impact it might have had, and then you’d never be where you are now”. And i like it here. 🙂

    I have no regrets either over the past – there is always, though, that tinge – if I knew then what I knew now …..
    The clock seems to be going too fast so seem to never have enough time – if I don’t comment on your writes – is not you – blame the clock !!!

      Hey there Sue! It’s all the clock’s fault! I do think about if I knew then what I know now. However, it would change so much of what has made me the person I am now.

      Thanks. 😀
