Regrets and mistakes
Stagnant in life,
Being burned like candles
Being slowly devoured
By flames of reflection
As light flickers,
Leaving the dark silent room.
As dreams fade, dreams forget
Doubting doubts in heart
Then waking up, longing for something
Can't feel, can't see
The warmth long gone
Though living, life long dead.
Century's year had yet to pass
Yet blame will stay,
Thoughts unclear as
Loneliness, pains, mourning
All are ephemeral
But keep on treasuring
The causes of footprints left.
Maybe or just maybe
Life is the biggest problem
Or just an untouchable reality
Or a facade of suffering
Or a charade of an unknown
Either or neither,
Just have faith, even a dot of it.
Because everytime everything soars higher,
Makes it possible for it to fall harder
Then regrets surfaces, inner demons laughs
Just like how everything submerge
On water, they tried but drowns eventually.
About the poem
I sometimes do bad decisions that makes me regretful for my entire life that i cant just stop remembering it. Until there are times where i ask myself why did i do it? why would i do that thing? And this kind of thing repeats itself even for a long run hunting me. Thus i want to seek inner peace without worry and regrets but sometimes its just to hard to do it than to keep motivating myself. We all have regrets but we can overcome it, just trust yourself even its hard to let go. Then one day you'll just remember how fantastic is it to experience such things because life lessons are the best teachers we have.
