We All Make Mistakes - Poem by Francis Duggan

On our life's journey we all make mistakes but time ticks on fast
And why worry about what might have been since we cannot change the past
Though some of us our past mistakes known to repeat again
Some lessons of life we should have learned with us do not remain
We all are very different as some do like to say
And most of us do look at life in quite a different way
No point in regretting your past mistakes the past has been and gone
We can only live in the here and now and life it does go on
No use lamenting on what might have been regret seems such a waste of time
Some ageing people live with the unhappy memories of mistakes they made in their prime
The burden of regret they do carry with them until their last night and day
Regretting whilst the seconds on their lives do tick away
For such seems such a waste of time as it doesn't change a thing
You may as well be happy and laugh and dance and sing.
