    -------------------------------------------


    So much time goes by
    And I find myself thinking
    About the things that could
    And the things that should have been
    Too lazy to get off my butt to do something
    About the situations that you just donít leave unattended
    But I did

    So much time goes by
    And I find myself wondering
    How I got where I am
    Too immature to realize
    That I missed opportunities
    And made wrong decisions
    And am still holding on to the fact
    That everything happens for a reason
    Still not stepping up to the responsibility
    Of my messed up and messed over life
    Still suffering from the consequences of things
    You just donít do
    But I did

    So much time goes by
    And I realize I donít have much time left
    Too backwards to move forward
    From this life Iíve destroyed
    Sleeping in a bed of regrets
    Wondering is there any hope left
    For me

    I doubt it
    I should learn to get comfortable
    In the condition Iíve created for myself
    Get used to being lost
    Why should the answers come now?
    When Iíve spent so much time
    Failing to actually search
    Yeah, so much time
    Iíd be all right if it just slowed down
    And let me gather myself
    But time goes by
    My biggest fear.

      And am still holding on to the fact
    That everything happens for a reason

    Perfect. That's exactly what I do everyday of my life. It's a constant reminder, and a constant reason to wake up every morning. The past carves the way for the future.

    There's no need to rewind, or regret as long as you live by that saying.

    With everything that's happend to me, I think I can honestly say that I wouldn't go back and change anything. Even at this very moment, which has been the lowest of my life (so far), I wouldn't change anything.

    I have to let life play out. I have to see where this natural progression is taking me. I want to see the conclusions to the "reasons."

    doubt it
    I should learn to get comfortable

    Wrong. If you did that, then what can happen for you? By saying that, then you're going against the statement I copied above. There's no need to get used to it, because change takes place every second, every minute of every day. You know that; you've seen that; you've felt that, and you can't deny it. Even small changes turn into large events later on.

    Why should the answers come now?
    When Iíve spent so much time
    Failing to actually search

    The answers will be there, maybe you haven't noticed them yet. In all actuality (I'm probably speaking for myself here) you more than likely have the answers, but don't want to accept them.

    Good piece. Good luck. :(

      yea, I felt this poem, it sounded like it was describing ME. and people like to say that I'm too young to feel this way, 'you got the rest of your life ahead of you' well, technically, a 96yr old also has the rest of their life ahead of them too. very nice, don't change it.

      "sleeping in a bed of regrets", I'll bet it keeps you up at night. I like really like that line. I never comment on many free/blank verse poems, but I can really relate more to this one. We're suppose to live w/o regret, if only there was a reset button. Keep up the good work.

    3. How did it make you feel?
    4. Why did it make you feel that way?
    5. Which parts?
    6. What distracted from the piece?
    7. What was unclear?
    8. What does it remind you of?
    9. How could it be improved?
    10. What would you have done differently?
    11. What was your interpretation of it?
    12. Does it feel original?

    Be kind, take a few minutes to review the hard work of others <3
    It means a lot to them, as it does to you.
