Wasted Years - Poem by Abimbola Ogunsowobo

It took me so many years
To regain my sanity
To discover my folly
I've toyed with life at my prime
I'm now begging for time reversal
If I can amend my mistakes
Oh! What a miserable sweet past
Now I'm old
I now have to walk the journey I should have walked
I now have to beg for the things I should have had
Oh! Misery........ Youthful age is a trap.
