"Never regret anything because at one time... it was exactly what you wanted."-Audrey Hepburn

Running with my team
I look off to the right
And what I see
Is an inspiring sight.

Two months ago
During Christmas break
Drugs were the first thing he'd do
When he'd wake.

I opened my heart
And gave him my time
But the parties were blinding
And he missed all the signs.

I tried to change
What he was trying to be
But he was troubled and cold
And just couldn't see.

Seeing him in the hallways
Was painful as ever
And his partying habits
Still, no one could sever.

Time would only tell
If he would change or not
Though the very thought of it
Makes me feel lonely and distraught.

But on that day
When I was running my lap
What I saw then and there
I suppressed my want to clap.

For he was in shape
And swinging his bat
Every movement, every technique
He knew where he was at.

The passion in his eyes
Suddenly made me remember
Exactly what I saw in him
That past December.

It's a shame now since
I've finally moved on
No doubt his place in my heart
Will be weighing a ton.

He goes through his day
Looking for the unseen seam
Maybe someday he'll find
That the answer is right in his dream.

The author's comments:
I met someone in December who I really fell for, but all he did was party. He confessed he had feelings for me too, but he knew that I'd never accept his partying habits. I still see him in the hallways and all I want to do is help him, but I know it wouldn't do anything. He has so much potential too, but he just can't get past the partying.
