Wasted Time - Poem by John Millington

Upon wasted time I reflect
Concern turned away by hostile neglect
They say time can heal
But the saying's surreal
Once a mistake is met
Follows pain and regret

My mind and heart are torn
I'm on trial at dawn,
My sin was betray
It depicts my last day

Mulling over my actions, one step at a time I take
Trying to pinpoint my fatal mistake
Was my portrayal my betrayal?
Or was I simply born to fail?

    A great poem, we all think of failing at some point,
    but as time passes we have better things to think about.
    Life will pass no matter what we do or think so we might
    as well make the most of it.
