"A poor life this if, so full of care
We have no time to stand and stare."


I'm a smart person,
I just say stupid things sometimes.
I know better than to do certain things,
but I end up doing them.

I make mistakes.
I'll make lots more in the future, too.

But...
What I do today
doesn't determine what I will do tomorrow.
Who I was yesterday
doesn't determine who I will be tomorrow.
Yesterday, last Sunday, five minutes ago...
That was the past.
I don't live in the past.
I live in the right now.

Holding on to things that I can't change...
Regretting things I shouldn't have said, shouldn't have done:
It's too late.
They've been said.
They've been done.
They've been felt guilty for.

But right now?
I have 60 individual seconds,
60 minutes,
24 hours
worth of second chances.
The best part?
They're free.
And they rollover.

The author's comments:
I made a horrible mistake one night, and it resulted in a messy breakup. This was a reflection.
