To Right the Wrongs

Updated on April 13, 2014

If you could live your life again,

to right the wrongs you've done,

What would be the thing you'd change,

the most important one?

Would it be a childhood regret,

a choice that you may have made,

Perhaps a thought you may have then held,

as if in some charade?

Was there a friend you might have made,

yet, lost in your poor act,

Was it an exaggerated sum,

without more thoughtful care, exact?

Could you have taken someone's joy,

with no regard for others then,

A shameful resort in some report,

absence in a truthful good friend?

Poorest actions, in our long gone days,

To take them back, if we could,

A conscience held, an admirable trait,

in being human, is to our good.

Remorse of memories that all would change,

a part of time we know,

Each is a segment of time we share,

and a part of each, as we grow.

Tomorrow's date, our voices to speak,

for the goodness of all future time,

For is now that we may make our amends,

our reason to have its rhyme.

Tomorrow is a day to right the wrongs.
Tomorrow is a day to right the wrongs.

      I had my learning curve as a child, and I remember those things well. As an adult, my patience sometimes isn't where it should be, and that I must work on. I will do it, and your piece brought those memories flooding back. You did a great job on this one.

      Whonu, this is beautiful! I like the 'emotions' you gave each of the flowers. I have righted any wrongs I may have inflicted on friends or family and I feel good about that. Life is too precious to live it full of regret.

      Beautiful words my friend. Amends I have made, so the conscience is for reliving a moment, I'm not sure I would. It has all brought me to this point in life, which I value greatly.

      What a beautiful sentiment. But, I would say that there is not much point in regret or remorse, except maybe to learn from it. There is a certain amount of healing and growth that comes from those types of feelings, so neither is there any point in denying them some kind of life, if only for just a bit. In the end, though, we learn from our past mistakes, failures included. Hopefully to realize that who we are in the here in now is all the better for it.
