Reflecting Upon Regrets - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

We accept.
Even those rejections,
That come to us unexpected...
We accept.

We all try to do our best.
Very few try hard 'not' to succeed.
It is a quality of human nature...
To do those things to have others pleased.

We seek conquests,
To prove to some...
We are better than the rest.
With an neglecting of common sense...
Ignored!

When our backs are up against a fence.
Or a high brick wall...
We refuse to climb.
Or around it crawl!

We accept.
Even those rejections,
That come to us unexpected...
We accept.

We seek conquests,
To prove to some...
We are better than the rest.
With an neglecting of common sense...
Ignored!

We all try our best.
Very few try hard 'not' to succeed.
It is a quality of human nature...
To do those things to have others pleased.

When our backs are up against a fence.
Or a high brick wall...
We refuse to climb.
Or around it crawl!

We accept.
But never direct our steps,
To move forward with lessons learned.
That has, of yet...
Been a choice to satisfy,
Without reflecting upon regrets!
Since regrets for us are not acceptable.
