Memories dance, like projections in my mind.
The yearning to go back, if only I could rewind.
Bad choices I made, this time not so blind.
I’d right the wrongs, for when I was unkind.
I’d focus on my future, to not get behind.
I’d know those who matter, for it’s them I would find.
But the past can’t be redone, can’t be redefined.
I must focus on the now, so regrets nevermind.
New beginnings are a must, my purpose not confined.
I must persevere, every day I must grind.
I’ll be present each day, I won’t be resigned.
My path has now changed, from flat to inclined.
Just keep going, to myself I remind.
Each sunrise is new, my destination unassigned.
