If Only I Could

If Only I Could


The past is yesterday,
which we can't change.
So we set new priorities,
to which we will arrange.

Life is a daily lesson,
that which we shall learn.
Forget to follow the learned rule,
then by those actions we shall burn.

We offer each other some sage advice,
while each other we shall not control.
Yet we manage to stray from such heart felt advice,
that we end up paying a severe toll.

One can never turn back to undo that pain,
one can only learn from lessons felt within.
For it is from these bitter sweet lessons,
that one has learned and will righteously begin.

For one to truthfuly forgive thy self,
the way that God would do.
Seek forgiveness of the one that you did hurt,
and give them the love that God gives to you.

Share with others the things that bother you,
let those not be bottled inside.
Tell them exactly how it is that you feel,
for it is then that the pain will subside.

Guilt is such a heavey burden,
that it scars us deep inside.
A forgiving word is what you will need,
to allow love in the heart to reside.

It is not possible to see the whole future,
or all the pain, the hurt and the fears.
But together we can learn from all of this,
from the shedding of those tears.

The past is yesterday,
which we can't change.
So we set new priorities,
to which we will arrange.
