Holding Onto Regret

I wanted to hold onto you,
I wanted to push you away.
Guess I wasn't sure of what
I needed back then.

The desire to hold and
The desire to toss aside were
Warring inside of me,
Wrecking havoc in my heart.

Since I was indecisive and insecure,
Since my dishonesty towards
You and I got the best of me,
My actions took it upon
Themselves to decide in my stead.

The distance created was so big
That it was pointless to try to
Return to what it used to be,
To what we were before.

It's too late and it's too bad
Things turned out the way they did,
But life goes on, not caring about
Our woes.

Roses have thorns, people have flaws. Both know how to sting.

Roses have thorns, people have flaws. Both know how to sting.

We Live, We Learn.

Sunshine comes after the rain. There is always hope that we'll learn from our mistakes.

Sunshine comes after the rain. There is always hope that we'll learn from our mistakes.

There is no point holding onto regrets and past mistakes. We make them, we atone for them in some way eventually.

That doesn't mean we don't deserve to be happy.

True, life goes on whether we want it to or not.

Emee

It's hard sometimes to make the right choice.

We often regret them, but there's no going back.

We make mistakes. We are human.

I wish there was a way we could wave a magic wand & return everything back to the way it was..but we must continue on & do our best to be happy.

A lesson of the heart.
