 If Only….

 

A phrase

Repeated over, and over,

But what does it mean?

It is a phrase of our own

Creation,

From our fear of

Regret.

We tend to commit actions

Then say,

“If only”.

We regret our action,

And wish for another

Chance.

We are haunted by the

Monster of regret,

That is inevitable and

Indestructible.

Our perpetual fear of the

Monster, must be

Acknowledged,

It must be

Ceased.

 

All that is left to do,

Is to face

Our own actions,

By the weapon of

Acceptance.

Disregard all the times

You said,

“If only I..

had studied

had listened

had loved

had cared

If only,

If only”

This list is

Endless,

So don’t drag

Your feelings of remorse

With you,

Or else

You would fall

In a deep, gloomy

Pit of

Sadness.

As cliché as

It might sound,

Life is too short

To be

Wasted.

All that is needed to thrive

In a world like

The one we are

Living in,

Is to think and do it,

And

Let go of regret.

This is not a guarantee

That you would not be

Remorseful for

Any of your actions,

But regret would

Be one of the lamps

Guiding you in your

Life.

It should no longer be

A rope

Pulling you

Down.

Act as if

“If only..”,

Does not

Exist.
