Sorrowful Regret

Updated on December 16, 2017

For My friends I pray

Fortune and lady luck had been my friends

But little did i know it will all surely end

The wealth and recognition right in my eyes got burnt

And im back to ground zero, with nothing left but then,

I seem not to stop sinking deeper into this poverty den

Been to places and made merry in all manner

Had friends and enemies but where's the former

The people i celebrated with nowher to be found now when im sober

Times have changed and a once celebrity now just a loner

She promised a life forever long to stay with

Didn't know 'twas while i still had it all and was considered rich

She'd call almost each time the hour hand would change

But now she wont even flash back if she saw missed calls, not so strange

A reality show is what she made of us

But no longer considers the promises we made for us

They talk behind my back and call me a fool

But they dont know in Gods hands, im only a tool

I will surely bounce back coz I've learned

And in their regrets, to be my friends again they would yearn

Its an undeniable truth that we learn who our friends are in times of trouble

And i figured i had hypocrites as friends with attitudes so horrible

But this not the end, my fall does not make my life's story

But my rise and how successful it all ends just beautifully

      Heartfelt writing it is. Being in sync with nature of things will keep one alright in any situation

      Write about nature, you will make people of similar situations feel good.

      Failures just as Success are learning tools for the young and inexperienced to get stronger in life experience. Most times we fail our way to success.
