    A very poignant take on the nature of regret: how the lament of one thing being so is essentially a wish that better things may not be.. This poem speaks volumes. It's gorgeous.

    i love how soft and matter-of-fact that poem is. As if to say that bad things are all around, but they build who we all are and bring out the absolute good.
