Regret - Brends’s New Prompt

I'm interested in social issues, relationships, problems of daily living, jobs, exercise, poems and fiction, plus safer living conditions.


Brenda Arledge has provided once again provided us with a prompt. This is the twentieth prompt, which is 'regret'. This is not a happy term, so it seemed we should write a poem about how regret feels to us.


Acrostic Poem

Repentant after our sad result

Every decision we carefully weigh

Grieving when we make mistakes

Results are always here to stay

Endlessly learning another lesson

To a better future thus we pray

Sad Song - Lauren Daigle


Regrets happen with mistakes

Rage can sometimes overtake

Missed opportunities cause regret

We must try living without strife

We learn new lessons in our life

As we age we see more truth

Trust the Lord with all your heart
