No Regrets - Poem by noblebandit

Regret the things I didn’t do

And the things I did

Discouraged by my own psyche

And wallow for a bit

To see the road bumps coming

I just drive over them

Moving forward, don’t look back

Is energy better spent

Living in the moment

I was blind to that

I thought they were my friends

But really they were not

Everything has a purpose

Nothing’s an accident

Regrettable association?

Why go salvage it?

Decisions, friends and partners

Things I wish I didn’t do

Mostly calculated risks

Some stupid, but true

Now I close the page

And go read something else

Continuing on the path

I’ve drawn for myself

Thinking of the things I could

Have done or could have said

Whatever happens, happens

How do you deal with regret?
