Once upon a time, I made some really dumb decisions
My thoughts were muddied by my heart and fantasy-type visions
What could I have done to prevent this damaging demise
I admit when I was younger, I wasn’t always that wise
Maybe asking for opinions from friends could have changed the path I was on
Or possibly wishing on a different star than the one I wished upon
I do talk to the animals in my life
But they can’t tell me what to do
I wish that they could talk to me
To offer a totally different view
Of the decisions I’ve made throughout the years
Especially the ones that caused many tears
The ones that put me at this place
The ones I wish I could erase
I’ve never said I’m perfect yet need to learn from my mistakes
I know I’m gonna do this no matter how long it takes
If only I had the wisdom that I possess today
My life would be quite different in a better kind of way
Even though this came to pass so many years ago
Dumb decisions have ripple effects that can hurt more than you know.
