when i look back on this

When I look back on this
I will see all the mistakes I’ve made
The friends I’ve gained
The friends I’ve lost

When I look back on this
I will see the foolish things I’ve done
The pranks I’ve pulled
The jokes that were nonsense

When I look back on this
I will see the way I thought
The naiveness of my words
The falseness of my choices

When I look back on this
I will regret the time I spent
The time I wasted over you
The time that I was dumb

When I look back on this
I will cringe at what has happened
It won’t ever come back
Nothing will ever change

But when I look back on this
I will realize
That every moment of my life
Has gained me knowledge
To become someone better
Not to make the same mistakes
Becoming the best person I think I will be
At least until tomorrow

This is really good, the one thing that got me was that in the 1st and 4th stanza i kept rereading the last two lines because my mind was trying to reverse the order they had been written in.
