Don'T Dwell On The Past - Poem by Joseph T. Renaldi

Do not dwell so firmly to mistakes
And the disappointments of the past,
When unknown opportunities lie ahead?
Profit by your mistakes with hope to last.

Yesterday is gone - tomorrow is unknown,
Today is the only definitive gauge
To determine your outcome in life
As father time turns each new page.

Each forthcoming day is an empty space,
A space that we should carefully fill
With noble deeds and tolerable thoughts
To conceive a worthy plan to promote good will.

So don't dwell on mistakes of the past,
Old failures and disappointments to nurture
To constantly fill your mind with useless thoughts
Will not aid you to seek a prosperous future.
