As I am looking into the distance,
With the abundance of time,
I can't help but think of the impact
My memories have had on my mind.
As am I watching, I wish that
some of those moments,
some of those experiences,
It is hard not to wonder
What could've been
What shouldn't have happened
What I should've done instead
Yet, here I am, sitting with an abundance of time,
Knowing that I'll always view in hindsight
What I should've done differently
But those ideas will never change the facts
Of all of my mistakes
Because its history will never go away
Never change my situation
So, as I am relaxing, with all of the time in the world,
with nothing to look forward to,
I am unable to live with regret,
Unable to live with the memories
That haunt me constantly.
I choose to live a life of optimism.
I choose to live a life of hope.
I choose to live a life of peace.
