Many decisions in the past
I regret.

Each has however,
Often in a roundabout way,
Brought me to a better place.

It’s not the decisions themselves
That burden or sadden me.

More the necessity of them.

To grow requires pain, hardship,
Even loss.

For without it,
Much is taken for granted.

The purpose of life
Too easily lost.

So when I find myself
Falling into a past
Long gone & dead,

I pull myself out
Graciously thanking it
For all that I’ve learned.

And, then…
To the present
I return.
