What wouldn’t I give to rewind time?
To rewrite a few years of my life?
To erase the mistakes of my past?
To rethink the decisions that did not last?
Why do we possess excellent hindsight?
But lack in far more important foresight?
Impulsiveness works on simple decisions,
Why do we mess up the important ones?
When reality comes crashing and you stand still,
That’s when regrets start making their kill.
Regrets for the things we did and those we didn’t,
For everything we thought would work but didn’t.
Worries of the future and remorse for the past,
Loss of faith and hope tear us apart;
They weaken our resolves and try our patience,
And strip us of our only armor, our confidence.
So what do we do? How do we cope?
Is it too shocking that we would sell our souls?
For a chance to change our lives, to rework our frame,
To make the right decisions, to live life again?
How do we find the courage to hope for the best?
When the future is bleak and existence is a stress?
When courage fails and death attracts us more,
Who can we turn to, for hope and support?
Unhappy and suffering from the pangs of life,
An existence full of gloom and sacrifice;
That’s the moment when our eyes close in prayer,
Our heads bow down and beg Him to deliver.
Because, when all is lost and nothing remains the same,
The only constant support in life is God’s Name.
