Regret – Ally Bear

Do I have any?
What a question to ask.
Naturally I do. We ALL do. To say otherwise
would be a lie.
To look back, I lived in the shoulda, coulda, woulda’s.
Is it healthy? NO!
You can’t change the past, the things you
wish you could change, fix…
If only it were that easy.
It can hold you captive…
It can torture…
It can ruin…
Don’t let it destroy you.
It’s not worth it.
Acknowledge, accept and move on.
It’s your only escape.
Don’t let it devour you like a starving hyena.
At times it will whisper NOT so sweet
nothings in your ear, your mind.
Banish it. Regret…
Don’t let yourself be defined by the regret
you carry.
