>I can’t take it back

>If I had to count up all the mistakes that I’ve made
Or all the broken promises that I gave
I don’t have enough fingers, or enough toes
Enough friends, or enough foes
To help me count up the cost I chose

If I had to remember each time that I caused someone sorrow
Or perhaps ruined their tomorrow
There’s never a penance that I could make
To overshadow the price of my mistake
For all the hearts that I had to break

If I had to think of the lives that might’ve been ruined
Because I thought I was sure of what I was doing
I’d never try to give an excuse
For my burden of proof
To ultimately live my truth

If I could but write a prescription
Or change the encryption
To the portal of my description
I wouldn’t, I’d just do things differently
And try not to do it as hurtfully
But today, I’m different you see

If you could but accept my apology
And hear the heartfelt words of Kaiology
Then you’d know that I am asking you to forgive
The choice in which I had to live
Because I can’t take anything back
Or do anything to change that fact

I wish I could…

  1. >That sums up the epitome of true growth. Feeling regret over some decisions that were made, but owning them as your decisions and acknowledging that once they're in the air that's it. One can only move forward from them, hopefully learn the lesson and then strive to be better. Very nicely done.
