The author's comments:
i wrote this poem in an effort to depict how quickly life can vanish- often, at the most unexpected moments. through our lives, we gather many unwanted regrets. these moments are captured in a mental photo album, one that we cannot erase. it consists of mistakes and memories from our past. life is to short to let go. we must Cherish it.
