Regret

Regret postpones life

It holds you in the past like a vice

Takes a hold and won't let go

Eats you up and takes your soul

 

But you have to live life with no regret

And look to the future you haven't lived yet

I have some time left that isn't in the past

I"m going to make my future last

 

The past is our knowledge and the present our mistake

The future we always leave too late

But i have come to my senses

And i'm not going to live in the past tense

 

I've made my choice and made my decision

The future of me is my own vision

I can live with the decisions i've made

I'm sure in time the thoughts will fade

 

I know that i've done the right thing

If my future me could give me a ring

He would tell me well done

You did the right thing for your wife and son

 

Not to mention my own sanity

Anyone who knows me would see

That i should never go back to the past

My life would just never last

 

So i've taken steps to take control

Improving my mental health is my main goal

My future has not yet been set

But i know i won't postpone my life with my regrets.
