Lessons of Regret

bird and airplane

If I could turn back the clock,
how many deeds I would change?
If time could be reversed, I would
do so many things I failed to do.

But time marches only forward
and it is only in this moment
that I can do or not do.

Regret is useful only if it
teaches us what is important
and gives us the wisdom and
courage to act accordingly.
